Additional Information

1973 (N3) Case and 11AOACB 23J Movement. Beautiful dial and hands...interesting mint green and dark brown hour marker colors. Very heavy electroplate gold case with 10k rolled gold plate back & bezel. All original. Looks very similar to a "Men's Lib" Version 3 - Senator "F" from the 1972 ad.

Yep, definitely from that range, probably the new version of the Senator for 1973, just missing the whale. Lovely watch, top quality.

Is that N5 on the rotor? if it is,that's a 1975 watch.

based on the limited information available a 'SENATOR' would be My call.

The Mens Lib ad is interesting as it shows the President and the Senator as Waterproof 23 Jewel Automatics with Day/Date.

Look at the case for the Caravelle Date/ Day AF, image 16....

The rotor is stamped N3 as well as the case. Thanks for the comments everyone! DW

This appears to be a 1973 Bulova Senator "C" based on the 1973 Line Book BAWD0181 page 29 of 94. Just missing the whale logo.  10KT gold bezel is nice.  Now you just need to put it on a "sharkskin" strap.
