Movement symbol on the inside is "49". On the outside of the case (back) "0" or the letter "o" or circles (2, one on each side) flank the "14k" mark.

I had so much difficulty trying to find a similar watch I thought I'd share it here if it'll help others. From the info I gathered on your site I was able to determine (I think) that the movement date is 1949. I looked through the ads here for '49 and a bit after and didn't find this watch. However, it looks a lot like the watch a member here has photographed along with, I believe it was.. The mens Ambassador from 1935.

I'd already listed for sale elsewhere, I'm just here to add this in case you don't have the model. It may simply be that I didn't search well enough.

Additional Information

Good afternoon, I would appreciate assistance in identifying a ladies Bulova watch which I've inherited. I believe it to be a 1955 model, judging by the "L5" marking at top of the back case. I searched through the ladies models already listed on your site, and the closest I could find was a '55 Academy Award, although there are certainly stylistic differences - that's where your expert bulova sleuthing skills come into play, and I'd very much enjoy reading any input I can get!  Not certain if it's a real gold watch or not - cannot find any markings indicating such. Thanks in advance!
