Patriot Model made in 1947 for sale. Crafted in 14K Rose Gold with a 17 jewel 8AH movement recently serviced, this is a rare find in such good condition. The angular form of the crystal gives a multi-dimensional look that you do not find in today's styles. Combined with the clean lines of the rose gold tone dial and the gold tone markers this beauty stands above the rest, hands down. There is minimal wear on the crystal congruent with the age of the piece but no major visible cracks or chips. the dial is in amazing condition no discoloration or marks visible (please see pictures for clarification.)  The leather band is used but in fine working condition, it is not the original band. This would be a great addition to your collection or perfect as a gift.

I checked the ads from 1948-1954 and did not see a model that matched. The glass crystal appears to be original as it is faceted to match the case in both directions.

***UPDATE*** 02-23-2012 - Found RMS 122-72C Bulova "Patriot" crystal info on page 33 of the Rocket #9 crystal catalog. Didn't have the Rocket but did have the G-S equivalent CMX 320-37 and it is a perfect fit.
