I picked up what I believe to be a 1956 Bulova Phantom. I did a little research and bought a NOS crystal off the bay. It fits pretty well. Not sure if it is the exact one for this watch or not though. The crystal I purchased is a Press Type High Dome 28.6 mm, Part Number 1126E. The movement is a 17 jewel 11ACC.

Watch looks to be in really good shape and I always find it amazing how a new crsytal can make a watch look like new.

Is the case or movement stamped L6?

Yes, both case and movement are stamped L6. I haven’t had an opportunity to load the photos on my computer and resize them for this post yet. I’ll try to get them on here tomorrow morning.
