Additional Information

I haven't had this one apart, as I don't possess a blade thin enough and there is no "tab" to pry on. I can't tell if the lugs are attached to the front or back portion of the case. Case back marked "10 K Gold Filled Bulova L6" with s/n on opposite end. Diamonds at 12, 3 and 9 positions

Per 1957 Linebook BAWDO131, this would appear to be a Beau Brummell "L", and a first for the database. Entry shows 2 variants, white gold w/black and yellow gold w/white face.

Mounted on a nice JB 10K plate mesh band and keeping perfect time.

Nice looking Beau Brummell 'L'.

Could be a top loading type. Hard to tell, but the lugs look to be attached to the bottom portion.

1956 Beau Brummell "L"  This is a top loader.  You remove the top crystal bezel ring and the movement will fall out the top.
