Watch Description


This is my first 1950s Bulova, a 1951.  It is 10KGF white gold and has two diamond accents.  I couldn't find an ad for this one.  Even though half the fun of collecting for me is knowing what the watch is I thought this one was really pretty so I got it anyway.  Maybe someone will have an idea.  Thanks!

I should have added that the case back has L1 as well as the movement.  Wasn't sure were to put that in the drop boxes.

Not the greatest image, but I think your watch is a match to the Pembroke.

Pricelists show two variants at $71.50, 'A' and 'C', no color identification in the pricelists or ads.
