1953 Bulova Warwick
10k yellow gold filled case with L3 date code
21 jewel 7AA movement

This watch appears to have been in a fire although it was not directly damaged. It’s been cleaned up so it looks better than it did. The movement has been gutted. This is the first model I’ve seen with articulated lugs. I will have it restored, even the dial.
You are not wrong about the movement. Good thing is you shouldn't have much trouble sourcing another complete 7AA. Although I'm not seeing a confirmation date code on the movement :-)
I certainly look forward to seeing this beauty brought back to life. I feel you'll do it justice.

I probably wouldn’t bother if this were an extremely common or cosmetically unremarkable model. But we don’t see articulated lugs everyday and there are only 4 other examples of a Warwick in the db. I probably couldn’t do it if I hadn’t recently found someone in the Middle East that can refinish the dial at a very affordable price.
