Additional Information

I fell in love with the black dial on this little beauty. She's in working order and is keeping time like a champ. I am planning on changing out the watch band with a black corded one to make it feel more original. Using the site I am pretty sure this is a 1948 Her Excellency L since it has a black not slate dial. The back of the case has 10k gold filled with the serial number.

One of my favorite Her Excellency models, very nice!  I love the jet black dial on this one.  I think putting a black cord band on this beauty would be perfect.  Nice getting a second one in the DB.

Not much question here

1948 Bulova Her Excellency "L"

Is there a date stamp on the case? There doesn't appear to be in your photo. Movement is stamped "47", and s/n starts with an "H", which I think we decided that being the 8th letter in the alphabet signifies "8" for 1948?

Very nice. the cord bracelet would be a great addition. It appears you've contracted the deadly Bulovitis (it's incurable), welcome to the club. How many now?

Geoff, I have 8 now and one on the way. I need to load a few more to the data base to hopefully get named. But yes I have caught Bulovitis. Thank you for the warm welcome.

Starbrite30, Don't worry, it's OK........ we understand completely. The affliction can be managed but not cured by frequent trips to eBay. Once you acquire a large enough number, you can hide new purchases from loved ones who just see a case full..............

My name is Bob......I'm a Bulovaholic....... welcome to the fold. :o)

You had me laughing out loud, it's so true. We may need to start a Bulovanomious club.
