1959 Bulova 23

Case is 10K RGP dated L9 with the stainless back, recessed crown; nice dial with gilt markers and black print, I think the shorter hands are correct for the smaller diameter seconds track; 10BPAC 23-jewel movement dated L9 also.

Not sure about a variant, could not find a match in the Bulova 23 series but it is similar to other 23's of this time. Different model perhaps, this is pre-Regatta.

Looks like the pepsi cola case. Bulova 23 from me.

Wow, this is a great looking watch Ken, nice job bring this one to the point of looking brand new. I really like the coin edge bezel and the way the lugs open where they join the case. 

I'm OK with a Bulova 23 ID.

Nice coin edge on that one.  They are usually torn up a bit, but yours is still pretty sharp.  Nice 23 grab man.

LineBook 136 covers both 1958 and 1959. In 1958 this model would be the Bulova 23 'W', but in 1959 it changed to the Bulova 23 'WW'.
