10KT Yellow Gold Filled Bulova Excellency with glossy black dial and gold printed 3, 9, 12 and hour markers with white printed "Bulova Excellency".   Scalloped sides at 3 and 9 o'clock.  Diminutive at 38mm x 32mm.   Case back is marked 10KT Gold Filled Bulova L2 with the serial number.  The entire case including back is gold filled.  16mm lugs.  The movement is a 7AA but does have an unusual U mark which I do not believe is a date code.

Thank you.   I actually believe I have this exact bracelet.   I took it off and put it on leather.  I need to dig it back out.

Wow, Good for you! If you have the original expansion band and it's functional: I would put it back on.

I would agree with His Excellency 'D'. The pricelists show the His Exc D as model# 37177 @ $71.50, and they also list the Drake with that model# and price, and list the Drake with case color 'Y'. There are no ads for this Drake that I could find.

Looks lime the HE D... lugs threw me a sec but one of the pics show them bowed back like the ad.
