Additional Information

Since there are so many of these and since I probably have the most complete collection of them I am finally getting around to posting them before they get sold. Enjoy!

Here we go with another fine example of Bulova's unique and super gorgeous designs. This one sports a rectangular tupe design and embellished with 2 small prong set diamonds. This ad from 1959 names it an " American Girl ". http://www.mybulova.com/vintage-bulova-watch-ads?title=195

Now this 1958 ad has it as " Canadian Girl EE ." Available in both white and yellow. http://www.mybulova.com/vintage-bulova-watch-ads?title=195

Unfortunately, it's not a Canadian Girl as I purchased in it's display box.

More will be added shortly expanding the data base by about a dozen or so. I have some very unique ones you just don't see  so I would rate them as rarer. Any ways, I'll gradually add them all now that I've discovered I can still add watches to MB.

and I always though Canadians WERE Americans! Could it be a Candaian's American Girl?

Oh, Ok, American Girl then.....What a gorgeous little watch! Shawn maybe when you're done you can give us a group shot too, like you did with the AA family?

I'll see if I can manage something but I still can't add a picture in a thread, so maybe I can just add a watch collection in my watches without the display cases.

Might be a "DD" based on these ads and the price list but the dial is slightly different.  Maybe a year thing.
