Additional Information: 

When 31-year-old Douglas Groce Corrigan took off from Brooklyn's Floyd Bennett Field on July 17, 1938 in a modified Curtiss Robin, He carried two chocolate bars, two boxes of fig bars, a quart of water and a U.S. map with the route from New York to California marked out. Corrigan, who had spent three years trying to get permission to fly from New York to Dublin Ireland had been told that He could fly nonstop from New York to California, but an Ocean crossing was out of the question.

It was a foggy morning, Corrigan flew into the haze and disappeared. Twenty-eight hours later He landed in Dublin and instantly became a National hero.

Case measures 32mm lug to lug x 26mm wide non inclusive of the Crown while using Calipers.

The original White Dial shows raised Gilt Arabic numerals and Bulova logo, tracks are printed Black. Hour and Minute Hands are Gilt Modern style and a Gilt Modern seconds Hand shows on a sub Dial completely obscuring the 6.

Unique 2nd Bezel housing the Crystal is removeable.

Caseback is Gold.

unknown

Round
Additional Information: 

This 1941 Corrigan sports a 17 jewel, 10AX movment.  It has a variant dial from the earlier version of the Corrigan.

This particular watch was pretty filthy... it cleaned up without to much trouble.  The wrong hands were also replaced with the correct modern hands for this watch.

The dial seems a little off center and unfortunately the crown is rusted on it's end and will need replacement.
