Additional Information

This example has not be cleaned or serviced and was aquired by me on Nov 30, 2017.

It is my understanding the movement is accessed by removing the crystal, which I am not competent to do; therefore, I cannot provide a movement description.

The watch does run and kept reasonable time for the period observed after some winding. I am reluctant to activate the movement further pending servicing as I am unaware of the service history or condition of the movement currently or prior to my aquiring the watch.

Case: 31.75mm, Case with crown: 33.17mm, Lugs: 17.56mm, Lug to lug: 38.2mm, Case thickness: 9.37mm.

Signed Bulova: dial, caseback

This Kreisler "1/20-10KT G.F. TOP" band appears original to the round case 1960 President line; however, this band seems associated with the other President variant in ads and other examples that I saw on this site and others.

Looks to me to be a President  "E" based on a short ad uploaded by Bobbee in Dec. 2012. Second page about 1/2 way down. Ad shows President models A - F.

Update: figured out how to insert the ad above.

I'd say it looks like the President 'E', based on the ad.

I agree with President 'E'; looks to have the band from the 'F'
