This auction is for an excellent time piece from a great and revered watch manufacturer. This is a superb 1973 Ambassador model with a BULOVA 11 AOACB 23 JEWEL AUTOMATIC (self winding) with an unusual quick set date function. It comes on its original Bulova signed strap which currently fits just under an 8 inch wrist. It keeps excellent time and is ready to go.

The Dial

The dial is signed for BULOVA AMBASSADOR at the top and AUTOMATIC under the hands. At the very bottom it says SWISS MADE.

This is a formidable looking watch with a serious retro edge to it – it has a beautiful large dial with an outer track chapter which sits slightly above the dial and adds extra depth and dimension.

Ultimately, beyond the retro appeal this is a minimalist piece with very little fuss and an emphasis on elegance and quality. It has an unusual quickset date function which operates by repeated pulling out and pushing in of the crown.
