Watch Description

Rectangular or cushion womens watch with a white gold filled case.  I believe it dates to about 1949, but I'm not sure.  There are, I believe,14 diamonds on both sides, then 1 larger diamond on the top and the bottom of the case. This was my mother's watch.

Thank you for posting this watch.  Unfortunately I am coming up short on model ID.  Unknown for me.

Beautiful watch and a great heirloom. I'm sorry but I'm coming up empty on an ID.

Thank you so much for trying to identify it.  Does Bulova not have a database identifing all their watches?

This is the Bulova database :o) They basically turned over access to their surviving model archive documents  to mybulova.

I spent a number of hours last night going through what we have on site as well as looking through new 1949/50 newspaper archives, but was unsuccessful with a model match. There are one or two close matches, but not with enough detail to confirm an accurate ID.

Carol - while we fail in giving your mothers watch a proper myBulova ID I assure you that having this wonderful keepsake from your mother makes you the winner! Congrats on a lovely heirloom.
