Additional Information

** I AM NOT AN EXPERT, PLEASE HELP IDENTIFY **

This watch was given to me by a friend. I spent some hours researching Bulova, from which I have no prior experience, and was unable to accurately tell the model of this watch. American Girl? Not sure. What I believe to understand is that it is:

  • a women's watch
  • fairly old (no disrespect to the elders of course) made in 1957 <movement and case>
  • made from 10k Rolled Gold Plating

Having never seen a movement of this kind, I was amazed at the beauty as well as effort put in to fabricate and assemble this work of art. Thanks to all for any help and making my first myBulova experience a good one.

Good call Rob, It's an American Girl allright but variant is unknown. Benrus Watch Co. also made several models of Bracelet watches trying to cash in on Bulova's success of the American Girl line.

agreed, there is way too much emphasis being applied to Model variants.

The Watch is an 'AMERICAN GIRL' model.
