Additional Information

This is a Bulova Ladies watch in 14K White Gold with 38 Diamonds (1 CT. total weight).  This one confused me due to: 1) Has N6 stamped on movement,  2)  N2 stamped on the case back. Inside the case  it is stamped: REF K53.  I have purchased a Print Ad from 1973, which shows the watch in question.  Bulova issued this watch a number.  #35227.  I tried to upload the Bulova ad but it was too large.  I have cut and cropped the ad into 2 pieces.  First one shows the watch, and the second one shows the ID of the watch as # 35227.  Please forgive me and my uploads, I am new to mybulova, and I am also a $10 per month Donor.  I love this site.

Yes, she is very beautiful and thank you.  I had the watch and just recently I found a Bulova Print ad on Ebay.

Is there a generic name given on the advert showing the watch. I'm curious if it groups them with a name. Any chance you can send me a copy of the ad to post to the 1972 ad section ?(admin@mybulova.com)

Beautiful watch! A more complete ad photo may help assign a name. It's hard to tell at this poinjt if the number designation is Bulova, or a catalog number from a store/distributor.

Hello again TexasLady. This watch is over the top cool. For a short time we were assigning the Bulova reference number (in this case 35227) as the model name bu wee stopped several years back. Unfortunately that means this one won't get a proper name until we find a more descriptive advert. Thanks for sharing it! 

I hope you have opportunity to wear these watches.

A very nice watch, quite elegant. Really deserves a name, but unknown for now.

Shouldn't this watch be given the Number #35227 due to this ad?

All Bulova watches had a product/model number, but most during ths period also had a model name.

A key element to limiting Bulova watches to the site to 1979 was that around 1980 most watches stopped getting a model name and only had a number, making IDing way more tricky.
