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

Older 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: http://www.manleyhorlogerie.com/Watch_History/bulova.htm#Bulova%20Date%20Codes

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

I have a Bulova Watch that was given to a Clark Candy employee with a Serial Number of 523791. Looking for what year it was made and is it worth anything

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:

I NEED TO KNOW YEAR OF BULOVA LADIES WRIST WATCH ITS 10 KT AND I HAVE A SERIAL NUMBER z78782. it has bulova ms on back

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

I'm unable to find information anywhere on this watch, so am really hoping you can help. The watch in question is a ladies Bulova, stamped BULOVA 14K on the back of the case (at one end) and on the...

This is just a personal suggestion that I have.
It sounds like you have a vintage Bulova watch and unless there is a watchmaker near you who deals with vintage watches (they are hard to come by!) you will have to rely on the internet but it could be a time consuming project.
What I would do, is go to www.google.com , type in vintage 14 kt Bulova, or 14 kt Bulova, or similar combination, and click on the IMAGE link (second tab at the top of page) and it will bring up every image on the internet of 14 kt bulova watches, etc. Look for the one that looks like yours and then go to the site that has that photo.. It might be helpful
Whatever you do, you have a good watch, Dont get rid of it as the gold is valuable, even if the watch does not work.

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.
