This watch was given to me by my uncle. This was my great grandfathers retirement watch. All I know is its from the 50's. I am sure the crown is not original and it has a seiko band. I apologize but I do not know how to remove the backing to give you the movement details. I have looked at hundreds of 50's era Bulova watches with no luck in matching what I have which is what led me to your great website. Any info would be very welcome. Thank you.

Yep "59" Royal Clipper.  The crown looks a little big so it may be a replacement.  Nice Watch.  I do like the Burgandy Croc bands.  Leather is kind on lug wear, where metal bands are not as kind.

Thank you for all the help everyone. You guys are awesome. You have a great page going here, keep up the good work. I'll be sure to post more pics after I get it serviced and get the new band. Thanks again.
