Wanted: 1940s Military case or just back as seen here......

I have a watch like the one linked below that I stupidly bought on the bay without checking the photo of the back, alas it only has the inner dome cover and not the screw down section. Should anyone have a case back or even better a case as this one has been through some neglect then let me know. The dial and movement are way too nice to scrap for parts it looks original radium. Thanks

Same as:  http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1943-military-issue-2049

Gary, ebay usually has several sellers of plain casebacks advertised for Type A-ll's, A17, A17A, Ord Dept, Ord Corps, 1917-H, 3818A, and 3818B. All these should fit your case, as they were all interchangeable, even between manufacturers as they all used the same dimensions, and the same cases from the Star Watchcase Co.
