Mark, do you still have your doubts? Looks like the ID from Bulova hasn't convinced you 100%.

admin,

The Gents version  was named 'BERKSHIRE' - not sure what to call this Ladies model ?

We have lady's and men's "Academy Award".  Couldn't it be the same for the Berkshire?   They are, after all, identical except for size. That's what I'm assuming for my set, for now.

The 'ACADEMY AWARD's are themed Lisa, none share  the same Case across gender and can be individually identified by variant.

The only other Ladies and Gents Watch sharing the same Case design (I'm aware of) is the 'RITE ANGLE': 

An ad in the database names the Ladies model 'LADY RITE ANGLE' and, as Ticker correctly suggests,  possibly We should call this Watch 'LADY BERKSHIRE' for identities sake, for now.

 

** As an added note to the 'BERKSHIRE' - was it a 1955 Black Dialed model identified by Bulova? no variant to the style mentioned, which to Me is an important minor detail as the earlier 1950's pieces with light Dials may not be the 'BERKSHIRE' at all, as We are assuming.

 

'LADY BERKSHIRE' (?)

Idk, it's not My call - what does admin think?

I'm happy to name it the Berkshire until such time that another name is present with better evidence.

If there is a consensus here to call it the 'Lady Berkshire' to differentiate it from the men's version then I'm also happy to add that to the database listing.

Thoughts?

Question in reguards to the Two 1955 Watches ID'd by Bulova:

Does anyone have any thoughts or comments on the Watch bezels? ....which appear Black.

The 1950 Watch I own and the Ladies model just purchased both have Gold Bezels.
