Additional Information

Hello,  Picked up this one this week just to have an example of it, an Academy Award "A".  The 6BC 21 jewel movement is dated A9 unfortunately isn't working but has a nice gold curtain dial.  It is 10k gold filled and the case that is dated L0.  I had picked up a spare band for the "J" so I was able to use that for this watch.

And I finally got a box.  Alas not in great condition but glad to have an example until I can find a better one.

I've always liked these dials on the AA series of watches, a very unique feature with Bulova Academy Award watches that help easily identify them.

Nice one, and how fortunate to find a replacement band that matches the ads!

AA "A" she is.

Thanks all!  I have been trying to only buy watches that are working but these aren't very common so I thought it was worth picking up especially since I had the extra band : )
