Looks to be in clean condition, nice find! Your photo color appears to be a little off, making the case and dial indices/numbers look white and face gray.

If confirmed case and dial markers are yellow and face white, I agree with

Thanks for your reply.
Photos were taken with with led light...
The markers are yellow/gold, the dail is white with patina, and the case to. The back is SS.
I have a question, the 10BPAC is without the 6 adjustment text, and has a B in it.
(My L6 10BPAC rotor is closed, with text.)
Was the 10BPAC even made in 1954, is this an early model?
Or is this 10BPAC version the Swiss edition?
(Sometimes I see 10BOAC rotors with the B in it)
I don't now how to upload a picture or to edit .
Regards, Sybren

There are currently 7 - 1954 dated Bulova 23's in the Db with 10BPAC movements, so It's good. I randomly opened one and it had the cutout B rotor.

You can add pictures to the comments by clicking the little colored square in the top bar of the comments box, or email them to me and I'll add them for you. I'll send you a PM with my email address.
