Case shape:

Additional Information: 

I know very little about this watch except I thought it was a Moonbeam, until I could not find it in the pull down menu above. I don't have the skill to remove the back.

Fully working and keeps good time. It has Bulova M0 stamped on the case.

It is difficult to take a nice photograph because of the shape of the crystal. I paid £60 for it, how did I do ?

 A woman in town wanted us to find out the value of this watch.  Thank goodness for this website.  I've been able to find two or three "close, but no cigar" models and am hoping someone here will be able to help us help her.  At this time, it's not known whether or not she will be willing to sell the watch.

Band is similar to the one shown on the 1949 Cadet model in http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/bulova-ad-1949-4.jpg

 Case is similar to the one shown for the 1946 Minute Man model (but the face, font and hands are different)  http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1946-minute-man-1079

The font used for the face seems to be similar to the 1950 President "A" but the case shape isn't there.

 Will hopefully have a picture of the movement soon as my business partner will be taking it to the local jeweler to see if they are able to open the back for us.

 

It did seem to be in working condition when I wound it last week.

 

This watch has been sold.
