Additional Information

I just inherited this watch from my grandfather. It appears to be a 1930 Spencer, but would like some assistance with the identification. It also resembles the President. Has a glass sheil to protect the movement. Keeps great time. I wear it every day. Any help would be appreciated. jeff

Looks like President.  Any chance we can get a picture of the inside case back w/ signautres/hallmarks?   Or could you type in what those markings say?  Please and thanks.

Hi Jeff, having your grandfather's Bulova = Priceless. I think you are very fortunate to have this keepsake from him! Wearing it requires servicing it regularly as well, at a minimum every couple years depending on the environment you work in. I'm sure you are aware that it can be restored with a newly painted and relumed ( glowing numbers) dial as well, here's my President:

It's personal preference, some like the fully restored look, others like 'em all original. Either way, spend the money to have it leaned and oiled.

President model, a real beauty!
