We seems to be getting things in three's lately.

What an amazing example, extremely clean and sharp.

Interesting that the movement in this one is an 11AF, rather than the 11AC as reported by Lisa.

What a gorgeous example!  Based on the string tag from the other post I would agree.

The 11AF and the 11AC, although they look similar are apparently not interchangeable, nor from the same ebauche. This is an in house Bulova Swiss movt, and a good quality one at that.

This is an extremely crisp example of the 1959 President 'H'.

Recently found this 1964 Canadian ad showing this same case with a different dial style, but with 23 Jewels. Perhaps the President H later became the Squadron H.
