Other Details


NOTES:  The shape and jewel count on this watch point towards the President or the His Excellency as the logical choices.  However, there is no ad that shows this model.  It appears most similar to the President shown in the 1956 ad, but at the time this watch was manufactured, the President was still being advertised as a rectangular watch with a fluted step.  It certainly would not be unheard of for Bulova to put out two entirely different watches under the same name, but there is no ad to prove that's what happened here.  So, for now, this one stays an "unknown".  It is not know whether the diamonds were original to the design or a later jeweler enhancement.
