Additional Information

Hello,  This is a Ben Hur I believe.  It is in pretty good condition with a couple of scratches on the crystal and a little wear on what I think is the original band and it started right up.  The back of the case reads B-10K gold filled, this is the first watch I have gotten with just a B for Bulova.  The inside reads Bulova New York.  It has a 21 jewel 10AE movement.  It has a slightly curved case and is yellow gold. Thanks.

Looks to be in good shape all around, with original band as well!

A match for the ad and others in the db., very distinctive engraving.

Nice score! Great to finally see one to see one presented on the original band as seen in the period ads.

1937 Bulova Ben Hur it is.

Thank you all.  A little detour from my normal 1940s ladies watches, picking up a few mens watches.  This one was hard to pass up with the original band.  It looked like white gold in the listing but I still like it in yellow gold.
