Hi!

You can't tell actually the date when it is manufactured by the serial number of the case metal.

However if you manage to open the backside and look in the inside there will be markings that will help in the dating of the watch.. Look at the image below for example
alpug_18.jpg
as soon as you open the back case there is a symbol (pointing by red arrow) that was being used that time for dating.

From the table below.
alpug_19.jpg
Dating at the early 50's are different. 2 digits printed on the backcase signifies the date manufactured.

L indicates 50's
M indicates 60's
N indicates 70's

so if you see a 2 digit stamped on the backcase for example is L2
then it means it is made on 1952.

You will not find this information unless there is a 2 digit on the backcase or you will find a geometric symbol inside the case of your watches.

I hope this helps

MY ladies Bulova has a case Number U772340 says 17 jewell also say L9 RFG ROLLED


What is the question? This sounds like a manual watch the L9 stands for the date of production. You can look this up on the internet. Google Bulova code dates. L9 is around 1970's if not mistaken. It is also rolled gold plate one of the lower end watches. Most manuals are 17 jewels, the more the jewels the higher the price and worth.

I was just given a Elgin watch with Ra Swiss made Ra I believe on the bottom of the face it doesn't say anything else but that on the face except waterproof n then the back just says 10krgp on the back of...


The 'Ra' refers to Radium - used in the 'lume' on the hands and sometimes hour markers. The 10krgp refers to 10 karat rolled gold plate - it just means it's gold plated and not solid gold.
Can't help with the date, though.

What is it the value (never been worn)


Bulovas are not high end luxury watches nowadays (they actually were, up to the mid-twentieth century). A modern quartz Bulova is just another mid to upper-mid level quartz wristwatch. Unless you know someone willing to spend some bucks just to have a gold and diamond watch, the value, especially with the price of gold now, may be in the metal, especially since it's 18K; the majority of gold watches are 10K or 14K. The diamonds are likely not very high quality, although they will be real. You should have a jeweler look at it. He will be able to give you an idea what the gold and the stones are worth. Unfortunately, as a watch, Bulovas just don't have much intrinsic resale value nowadays, not like a Rolex, Tag Heuer, Breitling, etc. would have.

I traying to find a band for my watch is metal but i do not know it model it call seiko kinetic SQ 100 it is golden all around with white back ground and it has a calender


You can try Seiko for the band. That band is pretty common in both Seiko current models and after market brands such is Speidel.
There is a 18mm metal band that is almost exact from Bariloche available in some watch repair and accessory stores. You can also check Speidel.
