"BF GOODRICH LIFESAVER TUBELESS" is what it says on the tire.  

Movement looks super clean, pretty sure this was never really run.  Box is excellent and says Bulova Fifth Avenue inside.

I don't believe we've ever found an advertisement for these.  I have a feeling they may have been special ordered by BF Goodrich for their dealers.  Some sort of attaboy for sales?

1944 Bulova B.F. Goodrich Silvertown promo tire watch, 16J 10AKCSH "hack" movement with a circle date code, near mint lumed black dial with lumed hour and minute hands and a Red/lumed sweep center seconds hand. No stamping on the caseback besides the B.F. Goodrich logo, box reads "Styled by Fifth Avenue"

This looks to be the oldest promo tire watch in the database, and I about fell out of my chair when I found out it had a military surplus?? hack movement in it.

Runs like a charm, but is hard to wind with the crown located in the "rim" like that.
