My 92 year old father gave me his watch he thinks he bought in 52 or 53. I know he had it in 53 from old photos. The case is Bulova as is the crown. But the face reads Bulova "movement" on it. Also the hands are blued. It runs fine And I'm thinking of having it serviced and given to him for his 93rd bday. I dare not try and open the case myself to look for more markings. Any info on this watch will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Jim Cook

A really fantastic watch, with great patina on the dial.  You can't fake that... so cool looking.

I believe this is the "His Excellency JJ" model.  Movement dates to 1946 and the case to 1948... so I think in this instance we go with the case.

An extrememly nice vintage  red and blue enameled Uniflex 1/20 10k gold plated expansion bracelent comes with it.

I've always loved this bottle cap type case.

Recently acquired this from a gentlemen here in Australia. This was his fathers watch.

The band is all original with a great marking on the underside showing it to be an 'American Standard' product with the original shield logo as used in the Bulova's early watches from the 1920s.

Hi Guys, hopefully this one will be easier that others I have posted.  I think this to be a 1949 His Excellency xx.  I found this one at what is now going to be my favorite antique shop for $49.00.  It is fully functional in the over 34 hours I had it on the original wind and is keeping perfect time.  It appears to have been recently serviced, the keyless works is smooth and after a little clean up I think this is going to be my daily driver for awhile. The case denotes 10k gold filled and A9 stamp.  I'm not sure if this is the original band but it cleaned up well and looks sharp I think.  As always, I appreciate your thoughts and time you put into this. Cheers ~ Rick
