I am worried that this is the same "Unknown" watch like this

Crusador has different engraving and for subject watch do not have the corresponding advert

It does look like Lisa's 17 jewel unknown.

Nice watch, but I'm thinking still unknown.

Hi 2dogmatic, I like this one. I can't help but wonder why Bulova would make two different watches that are apparently so close. We've seen this with several other model variants as well. It seems like a lot of extra work on their part doesn't it? I'm also wondering if this dial type was original or if it was refinished this way.

Agree with ID, this one is Unknown. Great looking watch.
