Additional Information

1960 Bulova American Eagle's in 10K White and Yellow RGP with Stainless backs. Both have White satin dials with applied markers & hands corresponding to the bezel colors. Both have M0 17J 11AF movements, and have the "hooded" bottom lugs.

I picked these up for a song as non-working watches from a seller that just wanted to sell stuff, all they needed was a bath and lube. I will replace the hands when I can find some, they look good when on the wrist, but the macro setting really picks up the corrosion on them. The straps are Speidel padded genuine leather.

* 8-9-12 edit these to generic American Eagles, it looks like Bulova used the entire alphabet for variants on these!

I love how the bottom band fits inside the base lug plate. A wonderful pair and examples of the white and yellow gold models.

Nice work!

Yes everyone, the Plainsmen dropped by for a quick visit on Saturday, I hope that Jerin is the first of many that I get to meet!

We did not get to visit very long, but in the time we did, guess what most of the conversation was...

What I want to know is this...

Did you ever leave him alone in the room where you keep your watches?????

And, did you "Frisk" him on the way out the door?????

Well,  I don't want to spoil a good ID, but there is another "American Eagle" with tang lugs at each end that takes the same crystal. Then there's this one with the black linen textured dial as well. They all can't be "E's".
