    New (to me) vintage watch

    I have just received my latest acquisition from ebay.
    Found a beautiful square watch from Bulova. I believe the modelast is L7. On the back it reads Bulova L7. Ser#C564407. Info says it is a Swiss movement circa 1920 thru 1970. Is this the correct the model number? Can I get any info on it?

    Looks like you are having trouble posting pics, so here is a link to some Bulova square watches from the 1950's onwards.

    Sorry, the link is only showing the search system, not the results. The above site has the most non-user friendly operation I have ever seen!

    In the link, click on "square" for case shape, then "men's" for gender, and click on "apply".
    Thenclick on page five at the bottom of the results for the 1950's range of square men's watches.

    You are right, I was not able to locate a similar watch our any info on mine. I can tell all the watches of that Era are very Art Deco, one of the features I love of this watch. I don't think it is a very special watch, one of hundreds of thousands, but, like the military rifle credo says: this is my watch, there are many like it, but this one is mine!

    Bulova are a brand with great heritage, and that movement is still serviceable today. A nice acquisition!
