Additional Information

10K rolled gold WHITE metal bezel with highly polished SS back. M2 date code.

Brushed screen silver white metal dial with polished silver numbers, indices and hour/minute hands.  Small second hand is black (which I really like).  Dial has painted black minute and second indices that are really hard to see and photograph.  Has Bulova signed case and crown. The very thin movement is 17 jewel unadjusted with Date code M2 or M3 (not clearly stamped, hard to read).  Watch runs well and is in exceptionally fine condition.

I am thinking a 1962 Bulova "Senator" variant is a good match considering  the steel dial.  Very much like this one here: https://www.mybulova.com/watches/1963-senator-7497  a 1962 ad in that listing shows this watch offed in yellow and white. The polished white gold bezel and brushed steel dial are quite striking!!!!! (and VERY hard to photograph) This will get a lot of wrist time!!!

Attractive watch. This is the Senator 'N' in white gold. I don't find the model listed until 1965, but I've recently sold one from 1963. I don't see them listed as another model.

The similarly cased J & I variants had the full numeral non-patterned dial.

The yellow 'J' goes back to around 1957 and is seen on a variety of band styles

1962 :-)

I need someone to correct my entry on the case.  The case marking is very clear and M2.

It was the movement that was hard to read. It is probebly M2 but the number was not well done.....

Thanks
