Watch Description

1960 Bulova 23J 10BZ movement date code M0, another 3 Diamond (real) Satin White dial with raised Gold markers and Gold hands, 10K Gold Filled bezel and case back, Black leather strap, 4X signed. This watch winds, sets and runs good, but the dial is in need of refinishing, which I plan on having done.

1960 Bulova President is my educated guess. Not 100% identical, but good enough for a first call I think.

Here's one similar to ad above.  Bulova General "A", from 1962 ad on site. Click for full ad.

Will, look at the crystaland the lugs. It's not the same case, nor is Stephen's President ad.

Stones, like most are likely to be a Jeweler enhancement.

We have, as Fifth noted, ID'd these as "President B".  There are several in the database (although one 1961 model is just called "President").   The ID appears to have been made on crystal specs alone.

I had seen those in the database, The Diamond embellished dial made me wonder if it could be a "Beau Brummel" model, seem that most of those also shared the same type of case as the Presidents or other 23J late 50's early 60's models. The stones are set in the same type of settings as the 48' Unknown Diamond dial that I posted yesterday, and look factory but who knows!

President "B" for now until an ad surfaces to prove otherwise. Thank You.

A fairly unique piece of Glass, is it shown to fit any other Model?

The GS catalog I have lists a CMQ550 as the glass number, but does not ID the model other than fitting a Bulova, must be in a supplement that I don't have.
