Additional Information: 

I'm always a sucker for this tri-colored grayscale dial.  The Ambassador C of the late 1930's.  Hands are wrong... needs Modern in white.

The 21 Jewel, 10AE is marked with an od "AAA".  It seems familiar but I don't recall where.  Or if I just made up remembering it.

Anyway.. great watch... to bad I don't have the bracelet.

Additional Information: 

Gents all I can say is wow... seriously.  Holy moly... this thing almost shows NOS.  It's that nice. 

Runs great... original bracelet... grea dial.. good glass... either this thing was kept in a climate controlled esc space or it's been totally overhauled recently.  Either way... absolutely the nicest example of this model I've ever seen!

Also... the watch is stamped on the outside with the Bulova and that bell type symbol of the mid-30's watches.  No stamp inside.  I'm now convinced that these are original cases and won't be swayed!
