Additional Information

This watch came in a collection I recently purchased online as a way to get into watchmaking. The watch appears to be in good condition. The watch winds up and keeps great time. The only noticeable defect (other than the expected discoloration) is that the crown has been bent.

Welcome to myBulova. Prior to 1948 I think Bulova named this watch  the President. In 1948 it name changed to 1948 Bulova His Excellency EE, like THIS ONE. Thanks for sharing it.

   Watch making is fun you are going to have a blast.   Be prepared to ruin a few hair springs and buy only the best tools.   


 1948 Bulova His Excellency "EE"  looks to be a match.
