SOURCE: I NEED TO KNOW YEAR

A Bulova "M5" code would indicate that the watch was made in 1965. Vintage Bulova watches can be dated by this little alphanumeric code:

Lx = 195x Mx = 196x Nx = 197x Px = 198x Tx = 199x

Pre-1950 Bulova watches used a variety of symbols and numbers (e.g., 47 and 48 to designate 1947 and 1948) to show the model year of the watch. A chart of those symbols can be found here: http://www.manleyhorlogerie.com/Watch_History/bulova.htm#Bulova%20Date%20Codes

The value of your watch depends greatly on the model / style, age, and case composition. It goes without saying, but watches (of any mechanical quality) that have real gold cases right now are worth quite a bit more than watches with gold plated, gold filled, gold-tone, or stainless steel cases. Presentation watches like those given to employees upon retirement were often gold or gold-filled--but there's a world of difference in value between those two types of watches.

In terms of age, it's much easier to date vintage Bulova watches by their "year code" than by their serial number. If you look carefully, usually above or below the serial number, you'll see a little alphanumeric code, like L5, N3, or P6. These can be translated as follows:


Lx = 195x Mx = 196x Nx = 197x Px = 198x Tx = 199x


Pre-1947 Bulova watches used little symbols to show the year of manufacture. A picture of those codes can be found here, as well as elsewhere on the Internet:

Since the 1950s Bulova has used a 2 digit date code, usually on the back below the serial number. The letter is the decade (L= '50s, M='60s, N=70s, etc.) and the number is the year. For example, a Bulova with a date code of M3 was made in 1963, one with N0 was made in 1970, and so on. Prior to the 1950s, it's more complicated.

I have a vintage Bulova watch that I'm trying to date: No. On face is 23 Number on back of case is 312171 I would appreciate any help.


Bulova began using a series of codes in the late 40's to date watches, look on your case for a letter followed by a number,the letter designates the decade,A=40's,L=50's,M=60's,.N=70's,P=80's,T=90's and the following number designates the year, an example would be,M4 would indicate 1964. Hope this helps,the serial numbers are used for identification purposes only

How do I find my serial number on my bulova watch


Serial numbers are generally on the back of the watch.

You may be able to find two or three numbers on the watch.

A case number, a movement number and a serial number.Alternatively you might find a style number (which in your case is 26B44) and a serial number.

Trying to date a Bulova mens watch


Short of going to a Bulova Dealer for a more accurate answer; I would say the watch looks less than 10 years old.
