Please tell me you didn't just pay $11,999 for this beautiful watch? :-)

No I just updated the photo. This watch has been listed for months, but if you care to buy it for $11.999 then I say sold. :-)

Bobbee noted this blurry 1959 ad snippet appears to be a "mystery dial" watch (watch on right below).  Looks like the overall point of the full ad is slim waterproofs....although the lugs may be a little different...looks very similar to Bob's subject watch and ad appears to be for Bulova 23's.

Mark I was just searching for a clearer ad when your post popped up! Thanks :) I think this deserves 3 ticks for "23" now.

I'm good w/  Bulova 23 Mystery Dial in variant field for now.  Looks like the system is not resetting the ticks when the model name is changed.  I have "previous tick votes" assigned w/ recent model name changes.  FYI
