Bulova 1955 Marquise
My grandmother was given this watch before 1950. At least that's what my father thinks. I don't know the exact date. When the jeweler opened it, he said he didn't see a symbol on the movement - nothing other than 17 jewels. He did admit that he was not a watch person and I'm afraid he didn't know what to look for. On the back of the case the references were an R or D 44529; H 3900; L 316.5. Unfortunately, I didn't know it needed to be oiled before I wound it to see if it works. It does work, but I will not wind it again. It is 14k, including band, and has 42 diamonds. Besides what the watch is worth in gold weight and diamonds, I have no clue. Thank you for letting me join your forum. My email address is email@example.com. I have paid my donation to have the watch listed for sale. I look forward to hearing from you all.
I purchased this watch from Susan to save it from the low lifes that would scrap it for the gold and diamonds. It is truly gorgeous and Lorraine's going to love it. I have updated the information that was prviously unkown, movement model, date of manufacture and updated the pictures. Enjoy.
