I wanted to wait until the watch was restored before posting but I see as of July 4 2012 The sight will no longer allow us to add watches. Very sad to say this will be my last watch posted on mybulova.com. Thanks Stephen I had a good time.

Hey Bob,

It's close but the Case differs slightly from the ad, compare the Bezel perimeters.

One heck of a nice piece......

Mark.

Your right again Mark! I wish I had your eye for detail. Guess I'm gonna have to list this one as unknown. :(

Looks very similar, and I have a bunch of the bands from in that ad above, or very similar and of the same time period.  I don't know what motivated me to get 7 or 8 of these bands, but I have them.  Guess I can put some of my ladies period Bulova on these bands and put back in the box in the closet again.... I'd sure vote on a Baroness ID, as it may be more useful to have a non-confirmed or tentative Baroness in the DB verses another unknown...if the ads suggest this is the watch.

The full ad states 15 jewels.  Sure looks like a match to me.  Ticks three. Confirmed  I can always change if needed....

That will look super when it is finshed Bob...what you thought was a Patrica turned out to be a Baroness...how cool is that!

Hopefully we will still be able to post watches after the 4th, If not, you can always e-mail me one!

3 stars...

Hoping to get the dial back tomorrow. IDC is closed for a week starting this week. The dial was finished last Friday. I have know idea when the watch will be done, but you'll be the first to see it. :)

Now I'm on the hunt for a period correct box.
