Additional Information

Picked this guy up the other day.  It had some not so great pictures but ai think I saw a diamond in the rough.

Wow did it clean up nice.  The movement, inside case, dial, are pretty much pristine.

Just a really nice early 50's watch.  The expansion Spiegel bad with onyx type inserts really sets this watch off.

I believe we have a 1952 Bulova "Ardsley"

Side note: model name first used by Bulova in 1930 as a ladies model.

Fast forward 20+ years and now we have a men's watch named the same.
