Additional Information

This appears to be a yellow gold 1951 Harrington.   The case back is stainless with an L1 date code.  The movement is an 8AC 17J movement.  The dial has applied yellow gold Arabic 12 hour number markers.  This dial is not one I have seen before for this model.  All others in the db have a different dial.  I cannot find any ads for this configuration.

Harrington case looks to be a match, but I think the movement/dial might not be original to the case. Seems to be too much space between the inner case and outer minute track.

Bulova Harrington but with a possible dial/movement swap.

Love those lug 'wings'! Agree that the dial doesn't seem to fit. 1951 Bulova Harrington noting replacement dial/movement
