1959 Bulova 5 Diamond "Beau Brummell" 23J 10BZAC Automatic 6Adj. Movement, Nice 10K Gold Filled Case with neat lugs Date Marked L9. Very Nice 5 Diamond Dial (Tested Real) , Crystal is scratched and will be replace and maybe a New set of hands if I can find some.  The watch is running slow ( Hairspring is messed up) so a trip to the watch doc is needed. Nice Real Lizard skin Band. This watch is a real eye catcher and I will update the photo when it is back from servicing.

**ID update thanks to Dr. Seuss...er I mean Smith 4-17-12

I do not know if Beau "O" is a go. 

We don't have an ad on this site stating so. 

But here is a 62 ad below:

T. S. Geisel woud note ID's tentative though.

So I give in two stars till I'm brought in know.

I think Dr Seuss might have something there Will, it looks like the same "cat-eared" case and dial.

It looks like it needs to be changed to a "JJW"...If I remember right, there was no generic Beau when I entered this watch over a year ago, so I used the only thing in the drop-down box...you are now in the know...

I was right on one thing...Brummell is spelled with 2 L's...
