Nice men's American Eagle here with matching date stamp and case number.

It's sporting a period B/R Bracelet, and I'm betting it came with it.

This is a watch i wanted for a long time and found it on Ebay.  It is my birth year watch and is what I believe to be a.1964 American Eagle F.   It is yellow gold plated.  It is marked M4 on both the case back and the movement.   I love the textured linen case, sheild dial with concentric ridges and star burst lines.  It has some discoloration on the dial and a replaced crown.

1964 American Eagle "F". Style-wise, there is so much going on here it's hard to describe. There are so many complimenting shapes and patterns; where do you start? Cushion case with cross hatch top and polished sides, to round crystal to shield shaped bezel ring, to a silver face with record grooves and a raised triangular pattern over the top. Gold colored asymmetrical triangular markers. This watch is the perfect representation of style circa 1963.

I haven't opened it up, but have no reason to suspect it is anything but period original. It is mounted on a matching condition period Speidel band that compliments it beautifully.

Some slight discoloration of right side of face when held "just right" in bright light. This seems to be quite common for this model for some reason. Only the slightest hint of plating wear on high points of lugs.

This was one of the watches on my "bucket list". Happy to have found one in such impeccable condition.

Additional Information: 

Based on the information offered on this site I believe it's a 1941 American Eagle with original strap. It's not in pristine condition but works, not sure if I should clean it up. No idea of history but it appears original. Unfortunately the strap is incredibly small so I can't wear it. How feasible is it to find a similar strap and add links? although not the most masculine look, it was what made me want it.

Additional Information: 

The tonneau shaped CASE measures 35mm lug tip to tip and 24mm excluding the crown. The case serial number is stamped to the outside of the case which causes me some concern about its manufacture date.

The DIAL is matt silver and is funished with radium stylee numerals and a black printed inner minute track and sub seconds dial almost obliterating the 6.

There is no dust shield which suggeststo me that the movement could be towards the end of its run.

Possible 1965 Bulova American Eagle 'D'

Decorative bezel and dial. Case back dated M5 and marked stainless steel, .0015 gold electroplate bezel. Inside caseback stamped 2503. Movement is a manual winding 11AL dated M5.

My reasoning for variant 'D' is based on the listed ad price of $35.95 and the availability of two variants at that price per the '64 pricelist. One of these is already identified as the 'F', leaving the other variant at this price the 'D'
