Hello xarkon, welcome to myBulova. I like YOUR Bulova a lot. Bulova did some great watches in the seventies but I think this case is my favorite. I agree that it's a President model, not sure if I see any variant's that match this dial.

Very nice, thanks for sharing it.

I couldn't find this dial color (green?) in any ads, but the case style is in line with the President series of this time. Is there a '23' on the dial? If not, or without any confirmation of the jewel count, I would not agree that this is a President.

No 23 on dial or back. I had the movement serviced 4-5 years ago; next time it goes in, I'll get an ID on the movement and see if there is additional information. It is accurate to about 1 minute/week. I wear it infrequently but happened to pull it out recently and thought I would find out more about it. Received for high school graduation in 1976.

11ACACB (23j) most likely, I am looking at an identical one right now. Tentative President.

I'd agree that it's certainly from the Bulova President series. Variant unknown.
