Additional Information

just found and purchased in a trusted watch store in Manhattan Beach yesterday this Bulova, 1960, Cal 11AFAC (M0), very nice size, shape and interesting dial, from 1960, must have been a modern looking piece back then. Case manufacturer is (reading the inside back cover) is MLB which should be Maeder-Leschot of Biel

I am having trouble identifying the model, can' t find in your archives or anywhere a similar dial,

Anybody has an idea of the model ?
thanks and regards to all

It has a great 60's look but I am not finding an ad for it.  I wonder if the markers or numbers were removed.  Unknown for now.

Thanks Kathy,

for looking into it. I don' t believe that any markers or numbers were removed, all the parts look untouched. Because of the MLB case may belong to the "International" line

Thanks again if you find any more info

Certainly would seem to be sold for the international market. Does the movement also have the MO date code?

Case markings indicate it's a model produced in Europe for the international (non-US) market. I'm sure it has a name, but our scant European ads may make it difficult to identify. This may be a candidate for the tag "International".

It bears a similar look to these (also dated 1960), with the hour markers being incorporated into the bezel ring.




Great watch, my vote is for 1960 "International" or unknown.

Seems to also be lacking the import stamp on the movement. International model name works for me.
