Pretty pleased with this one. Perimeter of dial under indices is finished to almost look like Mother-of-Pearl with a record groove center. White gold plated case is marked L9 and Bulova Pat. Pending. Front loader waterproof.
Crystal was pretty scratched / scuffedup and it made the dial look like it suffered from age "weather checking", but that isn't the case. Besides a few center grooves that appear to be slightly darkened, the face is perfect. Crystal polished up near perfect and I find no signs of plating wear.
Mounted on a period Champion black Polished Alligator band as seen in the illustration from the 1959 Line Book. Keeping perfect time.
