Additional Information

I was delighted to pick up this watch.  I probably paid more than I should have for it but it was the last to find to complete my AA collection and the first that I've seen come up on eBay so I went ahead and got it.  It is a very pretty AA model in all white 14K with two diamonds.  The same as the "C" but all white, like this one in the DB https://mybulova.com/watches/1950-academy-award-6818  I however believe this is the "G".  If you look at the accumulated AA price guide there are only two watches that are $115, the "C" and the "G" and on the crystal catalog the crystal is the same for the "C" the "G".  I am fine with it getting labeled a "C" like the other one in the DB as there is no ad for a "G" but this is my personal opinion.

It has a working 21 jewel movement and the silver/gold dial like the "C" and "E".  The movement is date coded A9 and the case is L0.

Wow, Kathy, I'm impressed! Congrats on completing the collection. Per ad in color calling out yellow gold as "C" , all white would be the "G"

Great work on completing this collection!

"G" variant seems logical.
