Watch Description

I have been on the lookout for one of these for at least 10 years.10K gold filled with a white dial that has mellowed to almost champagne in color. Red box around the date window and raised gold markers. Mounted (by me) on a period correct and ad match new old stock leather band marked "Sweatproof Leather". Apparently, nobody but me recognized this one for what it is - Bulova's first mass produced calendar watch. I bid it at the very end when the high bid was $36, bid it to win it and was pleasantly surprised when my winning bid registered as $37. Watch shows no plating wear and keeps perfect time with date change at Midnight.

That looks like a good match to me.  Congrats Bob, nice buy and I love that you were able to install a correct band.

I really love how the dial has aged on this watch, perfect patina.
