Your great grandfather had good taste Scazzo. Looks exactly like a Beau Brummel to me and in very good cosmetic condition also.

Are they really diamonds?The ad says white stones and simulated rubies.I know they did use diamonds on some of their watches and these are usually advertised as having real diamonds.

Good point on "white stones" vs Diamonds.  I'm with JP.  I'd go Beau once we have an idea of the movement details.

Thanks for the help.  Not sure about if they are real diamonds or not, I just made an assumption.  But I would not be suprised if they were the white stones and simulated rubies as advertised.

I finally got the cae open and the watch movement is 8BA.  

It sure does look like the Beau Brummel.

Hi  scazzo, welcome to myBulova. I think inheirited watches are wonderful things. To think this one came from your GREAT grandfather is priceless. In terms of the ID, I will go with Beau Brummel. Congratulations, it's a beauty.
