Additional Information

Hi all i have have just received this little watch today , I bought it off ebay. I believe it might be a 49 Carlyle . the inside of the case is marked Bulova 10k Rolled Gold Bezel, Stainless steel back, New York. the outside has the above serial number and A9 mark.

I would appreciate any panel members comments. it seems to be reasonable condition it runs ok and keeps time. The dial was very dirty but after a clean it has come up fairly well.there is no sign of ware on the bezel . It does however need a new crystal and of course a new strap.

Not For Sale

I think this would look great on a brown leather strap.  Agree with a Bulova Carlyle  Thanks for adding. Is a nice addition to the site.
