I can be reached at ncinfiniti@me.com if you have information on this watch. I plan of restoring it and either selling it, or, save it for my grandson if it was unique enough.


Thank you very much

What is on the back outside case?

Movement looks to be stamped with L1 for 1951.

Hello slinfiniti, welcome back, this certainly is a fine looking watch. We've seen only one other example of this watch, like yours also in solid gold. Unfortunately we still haven't discovered the name. Here is the other. I agree that is should be dated 1951 due to the code of the movement.

Thank you for the comments. How could a model like this go uncataloged? The case is in remarkable condition. 


It has case lines similar to the President, but the lugs were different. I picked this watch up in an auction in the U.K., I only paid $160 plus $28 for shipping. 

‘What additional information might you need to help identify it. Thank everyone for helping, I hope to get some additional information.

All the information we have on vintage Bulova watches comes from our dB of  magazine and newspaper articles and advertisements. It is likely that this watch has a proper Bulova name as almost all the watches they produced until the late 1970's did. Someday we hope to find an advert showing yiour watch, until then we classify it as Unknown.

Very nice model, I love the detail on the case.  I looked through the ads and didn't find anything either.  Unknown for now.

I also had no luck finding a name. It's a real beauty; some day it will be identified.
