    Help Identifying Vintage Bulova

    Hello. I found this Bulova at an antique mall for a country or bucks and thought I'd pick it up. What drew me to it was the "patent pending L9" on the case. I thought this was unique and the price was right so I went with it.

    It came apart pretty easy so I've included pics of all the pieces.

    Can anyone help me ID the watch?

    The patent pending really don't mean a whole lot. I've seen that on bulovas from time to time. The L9 means its a 1959 watch. The movement is dated M2 for 1962. It looks like a Bulova Clipper model to me.
