Watch Description

I found this in a jewelry lot recently. I was wondering if I could get some help identifying it. Here's the weird part though; it uses a date code never used by Bulova, being "I". I was wondering if I could get any info at all about this watch (Model, year, even simple stuff like the case type). I have been able to confirm it is a legit Bulova with totally originally parts.

I forgot to mention it is totally functional and is probably my daily watch it it is a male model.

Do you have a photo of the movement? What is stamped on the back of the watch?

That appears to be it, but the one in my hand doesn't Excellency printed on the face, and the numbers on mine appear to have raised numbers on the face of the watch, instead of engraved like on your's. Otherwise, it appears to be a total match!

Women's watch. Going only on case shape, color and dial, this appears to match the 

Her Excellency line

Here is an ad from 1951 that appears to ID this configuration as "X" variant.

Her Excellency, tentative "X" once date can be confirmed.

Excellent! Thank you so much for your help! I can possibly confirm the date of you could alert me how to open the case so I may get the serial number!

It also matches the 1947 Her Excellency "K" decently well
