Hello rgcabezas,welcome to myBulova, WOW what an amazing watch you've brought us!! Bulova advertised this as "The Greatest Diamond Watch Value Ever Offered". It appears that they called it the "50 Diamond". Advert can be found here. Thanks for sharing it!

I think that is exactly right, nice catch Geoff!

That translates into $1650 in today's money, so no insignificant sum here. A beautiful watch.

Congrats on an amazing  watch. My wife has is lucky enough to also have one of these.

Whilst we haven't found an advert giving this beauty a name, we have previously given it a tentative 'La Petite'.

Here is my wife's watch.

Any chance you can see the movement date code? Movement should be a 5AD.

Panel - are we tagging it as La Petite? I think we have with the others.

In keeping with the other IDs I think that's best for now. Good thing is that it'll be easy to change if and when we ever find a named advert for this beauty.

Thank you, I really think this is a beautiful watch. Can anyone suggest a good place to have it serviced and where to get a replacement wrist strap?

Thank you in advnace
