Additional Information

I have exhausted all the posted resources on this site and I still can't find an exact match.  It appears to be close to His Execllency, His Majesty, Academy Award or President versions but I just can't find an exact match to know for sure.

Based on the 17 jewels I'm inclined to think your watch belongs to either the Senator or Ambassador group. Leaning more towards the Senator group.

Seems there were a number of Senator variants.

Hi Larry, welcome to myBulova. I sure do like this model. I think Jaroslav (jabs) is right, we never established which model it is either. I hope some day we'll be able to nail it down. 

For now, Unknown.

Thanks for taking the time to review my post - I'll continue scanning ebay to see if anything comes up in the posted Bulova advertisments under Bulova Collectables...

Thanks again!!

Hi Larry and welcome,

Here is mine, 1956 also posted as an unknown. For what it's worth, mine came to me in a Senator Clam Shell and outer cardboard box. Personally, I believe these are from the Senator family; but without an ad to verify it's just speculation.
