Additional Information: 

I think this one is a 1950 Bruce. It has a 15 jewel 10BC movement with an "L0" date code. I haven't had it very long and have to do some work on it. It will run, but I have to wind it at the ratchet wheel. The stem will pull out and set the time, but pushed in, it turns and doesn't wind.

1940 Bulova Unknown (I think this is a "Dean" model but would like a second or third Opinion)

15J 10AX  with the Omega symbol on the movement clean Original Dial with Gold Markers and Blued hands. 10K RGP Bezel & Stainless Back. Nice Kreisler 10k Gold Filld Band. 4X signed.

I have a 1942 "Dean" Posted in the database and it looks just like this one with the exception of the Engraved Bezel, and Blued hands. The Sub-seconds on this one are slightly different also. I could not find any "Dean's" in the ad database with engraved bezels. Any Ideas?

Nice looking watch that runs well.

The Jury is in! It is now a "Dean" until proven otherwise.

* Photo update 11-13-11

** 12-24-11 New ID confirmed by 1941 ad found by the Plainsman! Looks like I need to find the correct hands.
