The BULOVA ACADEMY AWARD "Z," Circa 1950. (Illustrated Jeweler's display ad, from 1950...) 

The images were cropped from Gary's ("GJ") photos.... 

My latest "hunch," is that distinctly encased models such as the "S" & the "Z" here (which take the same crystals, BTW) are merely gold curtain, and silver curtain, respectively??? (So I put a B & W = the "S" for "Silver" model, on eBay!)

And the Ladies Model illustrated in this ad, is the Academy Award "B" model...

 

Best :-)  Scott
