10 K Rolled Gold Plate Bulova L5 8AC
I think this is a 1955 Jefferson. There's no example on your site but there is an advert and the 1954 looks ecatly like it.
outstanding condition and running well, no band
I am the previous owner of this watch. Case marked L4 but Movement marked L3.
New Old Stock (NOS) Bulova 37193 Jefferson. Complete package includes hang tag, original band, clam shell display case, cardboard storage box and guarantee booklet.
Yet another purchase from the big auction site.
Oddly enough, seller had it listed under vintage clocks rather than watches.
10AX movement with Omega symbol, "AAA", 21 Jewels, Bulova Watch Co and USA.
Yellow gold case with 10k rolled gold back and applied gold numerals.
Purchased mainly for the attractive stepped case. Needs some work, and a new crystal.
JEFFERSON - watches were in the care of a watchmaker, everything is original
I believe my watch is another version of 1953 Academy Award watch, possibly Jefferson, based on my search on this site. It's missing the crown. I have taken it apart for identification and as you will see in the pictures the watch has aged. I received this watch from my step father who said it was given to him as a gift by a relative in the mid sixties when he first moved to New York. The back of the casing has lettering that it is 10k Rolled Gold. The inside of the casing has the wording Bulova Sixth Ave New York. There is a capital letter A marked at an angle to the right of the main lettering. Also, above the inside stamp there is an engraving with a date and initials. Possibly a service date and I will post the date when I have a moment. I believe the date is 8-23-66RCT. When I opened the back there was a tiny black or blue loose screw and the figure 8 metal piece that you will see missing from the inside middle. Not sure how to describe it but there are three of these in the top left. Also, different with this and the few other 1953 is the blue second hand and square box around it. The case and inside the watch is marked L3. The expandable band is marked "Baldwin ®...Pat Pend". I also believe it is labeled 10 k gold. I will update once I look at it again.
