Looking to identify this model.  I believe it manufacture date was 1962 based on the M2 code

The serial number in the back appears to read F980591.  I wasn't able to locate that in the website database.  Any information on the watch would be appreciated.  I have the original case and box that the case slipped into.

Thank you,

Thanks for adding your amazing watch. Solid gold!! nice

I've looked through the linebooks we have access to but could not find a match.

Nor is there one similar in the database, so the search continues.....

This looks to be a match to the Rubaiyat (15205). Beautiful watch!

1963 LB151 pg61

I did not find this model listed in the 1962 linebooks.

I can't tell, but is the crystal faceted?

Also, can you confirm this is white gold?


FYI - the green box that it is in is from around the 1990s; I'd like to see the original boxes if you have them.

Very nice thank you.  Its white gold.  I don't know how to tell if its crystal faceted.  The fyi on the green box from the '90s is great info.  Thank you for your help.

I can't believe that it didn't occur to me that this was a ladies watch. I dismissed the Rubaiyat when scrolling through the linebooks, because I was looking for a men's watch. DOH!!

A Bulova Rubaiyat it most certainly is.

1962 Bulova Rubaiyat is a match.  What are the dimensions of the watch? Curious as it is being called a ladies watch.

The dimensions of the watch is 3cm.  It was gifted to me. I always found it an odd size so i never wore it.  Seemed to be too small of a face for a mens watch, but seemed too big to be a women watch.

Thank you all for the info.  Unfortunately I can't wear it.  It definitely looks weird on my big wrist.  So i'll either gift it to a niece or sell it.
