Movement Serial No.:
Case Serial No.:
Hi, Bulova Friends --
I'd like your opinion on this watch. The case looks to me like a 1949 (marked 49) His Excellency, and the movement looks to me like a 1951 (marked L1) 7AA. The dial looks to me like a 1951 HE "D" based on the Models section on this site.
But I wouldn't expect to see a two-year difference between the case and the movement/ dial. In fact, the case looks a bit mangled where someone prised the movement from the case or pressed the movement into the case some time ago. Could this watch be a marriage of convenience? (Alternatively, a previous watch collector was as fumble-fingered then as I am now, but had worse handtools!)
Thanks as always --
