I think all cases marked American Standard should be entered as such- regardless if they also say Bulova.  Bulova did buy Am Std, or may have owned a good part if not all of it as a subsidary all along?  It appeared to be all theirs (Bulova's) well before 1940, but I dont remember the year now. Early 1930's?   I am betting we don't see any other watch companies housed in Am Std cases after Bulova purchased or took controlling interest as a subsidary.

It would be nice to find out when other companies stopped using AS cases, will try several sources.

Have put 2 more pictures up showing the case numbers and the movement with a red arrow pointing to the triange.

Yup, that looks like a mis-struck 6 alright.

154 for me until such time that we see a 1926 advert giving this a model name.
