Additional Information: 

Appears to me to be a 1937 American Clipper "F", and a nice one. Inside of back marked "Bulova Fifth Ave" Caseback is gold plated. Movement marked with an arrow and s/n starts with a "7". No plating wear and a really clean face, hands and crystal. Keeps accurate time as well. Displays a multitude of jeweler marks on inside, so it was well cared for. Band is probably the 1st replacement after original and is a Speidel "Golden Knight 48". First named Speidel I have ever encountered. Band shows light plating wear on highest points. As an interesting side note; while doing research, I found a watch blog post from 2015 showing  another  American Clipper "F" mounted on this same (but extensively damaged) band, which I thought was an interesting coincidence.
