Hello Debbie, welcome to myBulova. I think watches are wonderful heirlooms as they are just so personal. Congratulations on having this beautiful keepsake from you mother, she must have been very fond of it. We always recommend a regular, professional service if you intend to your a vintage watch.

I've looked through our adverts but don't see a match either so for now I have to suggest an Unknown ID. I think other that the serial number you have all the right markings. Can you please confirm the number on the lower portion of the back, is it 295553? That's the serial number.

Thank you so much for responding to my post. Yes, my moms watch is so beautiful and I really want to get more information on it, I imagine it haveing a very prestigious name, we will see. 

I am unclear what number would be the serial number, the number on the back,outside of the case is 295553.

 

thanks again, have a great day

What an amazing watch. Can you confirm that the back case is stamped N4 under the 14K BULOVA.

Also can you advise how many diamonds the watch has?

This can often help us locate the correct advert.

Thanks all, I am getting excited that you will find information for me and to,add to this group. 

On the back case, on the outside, at the top it reads,

14K

Bulova

N4

 

just like that, stacked in that order. My husband has a jewlerers eye thingy and he founded the diamonds,

6 diamonds at the top of the face, one of those centered and larger than the other 5, 6 diamonds at the bottom of the face, of those the center one is larger, in addition to those 12 there are 26 that are the face/crystal.

thank you so very much for your help.

We don't have many vintage ads for the 'Diamond' series type watches, I'm still looking elsewhere though.
