Case Serial No.:
I am not quite sure what to make of this one. It appears to be a 1979 Super Seville Day - Date. Movement and inside of case back are both marked "N9". When I got it, the top band end (12 o'clock) was missing and it was replaced with one that is close in appearance. Bezel, bezel ring and band are yellow gold plate - face is silver with gold hands and indices.
Inside of case back is stamped "Bulova N9 Base Metal Bezel 12006 Stainless Steel Back"
Rotor is stamped: "Bulova 1373.50 Seventeen 17 Jewels Swis N9"
Case back has 3D Bulova woman logo in center, which would be European market?
Two numbers on back : 5-989307 and 4410301
Screw down crown that quick sets both day and date on first click out. Both day and date cycle with an instant "snap" at exactly midnight. Hand and auto wind.
I find very little info on this model, besides the theory it's a Bulova "tribute" to Rolex and most sites seem to guess - date these as 1980's and 1990's, but this one is clearly a 1979. It's quite a handsome watch and keeps excellent time. Gold plating is of good quality on both the bezel and original band.
My initial thought was not to post it; thinking it was newer than 1980. After I opened it up and noted it was double dated 1979, I figured I would share it.
