Welcome to myBulova, Beppe.

Are there any other markings inside the case back?

My guess would be that this is an International model, but I haven't come across one marked with the country of sale, as yours does. (Bulova It= Bulova Italia) If it is solid gold it should be stamped somewhere. It is a handsome watch indeed.

Welcome to myBulova.  I looked through the ads and didn't find anything that matched.  Seems a round bezel with a cushion crystal isn't a common combination for the time which makes it unique.

Hello Beppe, welcome to mybulova. The 11ANC movement was used throughout the 1970's. The first thing we have to do is find out what year the watch is from.

What are the markings on the movement?  One of them should be a date code, a letter and number like "N2". A better photo would help. Watch lacks the usual stamping on back, not showing a serial number - it appears that it could be a model produced in Europe (International). "IT" on the back may mean "Italy". It is a model I have never seen before.

We'll need to establish the year of manufacture first, just to rule out a post 1980 watch.

Are there any other details on the movement or inside of the case back?

ciao a tutti

i made new photos of the watch but i don't know how update the published card of my watch.

on the movement is stamped N1 and the stamp is visible on the new photos.

i made also a new photo of the internal part of the back case.

please let me know if i have to insert everything as a new watch or if i can modify the existing.

thank you very much for your help and for all the informations.

I just added the photos that Giuseppe sent me. The movement is clearly marked N1 so I updated the year on the master record. The case is marked 18K as you can see. I'm not sure the additional information does much to help find a model name but does clarify the specs on the watch.
