I recently inherited my late Grandfather's Bulova Watch. I believe it is a Duo Wind. The case is marked L1 for 1951, but the movement is marked L0 for 1950 and 9ASC. Am I correct that this is a 1951 Duo Wind "G"? I think it's a "G," but the second hand is throwing me off. It doesn't have the little forked end. I've been a fan of watches for 20 or so years, and have always wanted a vintage watch and now I finally have 3 (also a Hamilton and Elgin) that are not only vintage, but belonged to my Grandfather so I'm as happy as can be. I can't wait to have it serviced or restored and start wearing it.
Welcome to myBulova! How wonderful that you inherited your grandfather's watches. My grandmother's watch started my collection : )
It does look like a Duo Wind to me. If it is luminous "G", non-luminous "F" according to this ad. Looks like yours is luminous so I would go with "G"

Thank you both. It is very special. He passed away in 1990 and memories are fading, so it's nice to have something as a physical reminder. This watch works, but I'm afraid to do too much to it as it's probably been sitting in a drawer since the late 60's. In the same box were his purple heart and "ruptured duck" lapel pins as well as his DOE service pins. I was very happy to have received these.
