Well here's my latest $10.00 EBAY buy.I wasn't even certain the case  was Bulova as there were no clear pictures so I took a chance.Even when I got it I could hardly make out anything on the case back.Looking through the database though I found the SEA CLIPPERS and with a loupe was able to confirm it was all BULOVA.

Movement and crystal all come out the back of this two piece case.

Additional Information: 

Apologies, there are not many details about this newly acquired watch. From what I do know of its history it dates from around late 40's/early 50's (so for the purpose of this listing I have shown it as 1950). I've worn it for the last week and it keeps time and functions impeccably....and I think it looks great.

I understand that to reach the movement the crystal has to be removed and because the crystal is a low dome type this is hard to do with a normal crystal grip. My watch repairer says it can be removed but he is reluctant to do so unnecessarily (i.e. just to photograph the movement) for fear of potentially damaging a hard to replace crystal.

In addition to the case serial number shown below, the rear of the case shows "Bulova Watch Company Inc, self winding, shock resistant, anti-magnetic, stainless steel"

I'd be grateful for any more information about the watch, in particular its age or which movement it is likely to be fitted with.
