side the case :
American standard
25 years
19 K gold filled  (yes 19 ! )

there is also a "coat of arms" (i used google translate for that because i don't know the english word, it's "blason" in french). I don't think this is a bulova case.

The movement is a very nice bulova 10A 16j ; serial number  115595
there is also a symbol for the date code (probably how i dated it)
The dial is a metal dial with bulova on it.

Yea I agree w/ Bobbee.  This record shoudl be a 153.  When Stephen summarized ads over a year ago and lumpped the 18/19k filled with the solids, I think he just got it wrong.  Maybe we have more ads now, and Stephen's statement sounded pretty good back then.

153 for the filled models.

I now agree.....Gold Filled = Bulova 153.

It is great to see an advert finally showing an 18kt gold filled version thus cementing the notion that these do belong to the 153 model grouping. Nice work all. Still the question remains, why 19kt and why 16 jewel variants?
