1958 Bulova His Excellency 'D'

Case is 10K RGP and waterproof stamped, dated L8; has a very nice black dial with gilt hands and markers; manual wind 23-jewel 10BP movement, L8 dated, USA made; did not have the original expansion band so I added a simple black leather strap; has the original display boxes.

Beautiful watch Ken, well done. I think the strap looks better than the band, the black dial is classy.

I gather its yellow gold and not white....just coming across as more white gold on my screen.

If yellow then His Excellency 'D' it is. Again I'm amazed at the condition.

What's fascinating me is the dial. It appears to be stamped as opposed to having the numbers/markers applied, did you refinish the dial? Is the gold on the markers applied or painted? I'm not sure I've ever seen this before.....
