Additional Information

Looks like this is a new one for the database. 10K white gold plate case with stainless back. Single diamond at 12 position. This is a real slim one and the faceted crystal gives the appearance that the bezel is wider than it is. Replacement band installed by me.

Face has some crazing but it's only really apparent under magnification. Original crystal was badly scratched, but with patience and about 1 hr of vigorous  hand polishing with a cotton ball and crystal polishing compound, it came back nicely. Runs and keeps perfect time. Face appears darker around the edges due to shadowing. It's a consistent silver color in person.

For future reference, take note of the uncorrected mistake in the Line Book entry. "Faced crystal" as opposed to "Faceted".

Looks to be a good match to the 1965 Bulova Diamond Excellency "B".  Nice job on the bracelet.  Perfect match for this watch.  Well done.

The old boy has lost a little of his sparkle...and has a few wrinkle around the eyes......I guess that happens to the best of us :-)

Nice work on the crystal polish.
