Additional Information

My Father's 1959 Bulova Golden Eagle. The black suede strap has long since disappeared. I replaced the Speidel bracelet he had on it with a Hirsch Leather strap with a gold buckle. I cleaned and polished the watch myself and polished the acrylic crystal using PolyWatch. I hope everyone enjoys this post. I now have a part of my late father life that I can wear and enjoy everyday. Thanks Dad.

Golden Eagle is the proper model. Nice watch to have, looks good. Like this one.

In the record fields, movement model = 10BP; there is no movement serial number for this timeframe. One of the panel members will correct this.

How cool - heirloom watches are just the best. Wear your fathers watch proudly but don't forget a professional service every couple years.

1959 Bulova Golden Eagle - thanks for sharing it

(PS - I switch the first and third photos so the complete watch will appear in data base searches)

Stephen - I flipped this one this morning to GOLDEN Eagle, pretty sure that's what you were shooting for?
