Additional Information

It's hard to tell from the pic, but the case stamp is L9. The crown is missing, and it needs the full treatment. 

6CE movt is from the Aurore-Villeret 120. 

The last pic is of the watch ready to go back to the customer, but before I repaired the safety chain.

What you have is a 1959/60 Bulova Lido (white gold version).

I look forward to seeing the gal all fixed up and ready for some new wrist action.

Style wise it seems newer that 1959 but date code don't lie. 1959 Bulova Lido.
