Additional Information: 

Such a great case.  I picked this watch up over the weekend.  Looks like it has a recent upgrade.

The case and movement doesn't match.  The movement is a 21 Jewel replacement from 1937.  Originally this watch would have probably had a 15 or 17 Jewel 10AN.

Regardless I don't think it detracts from that awesome case.  I can always source an original 10AN movement from 1931 to complete it.

I believe Lisa also has one of these guys.  Still unknown?

Hmm, glad I decided at the last minute not to snipe in on this one, it would not have turned out quite so favorable for either of us.....

I don't think we have anything on this one, I'm saying Unknown for now. I'm kind of regretting I didn't bid though, you have my address, right?

You know... my snipe was set for 108.88, and I got it for 107. You woulda had it at 109. :)

Wow.  Nice watch!  I'm not seeing or remembering any ads or info on this one. 
Gotta go with Unknown for now, but a great one!

This one is easy.... It's a Sky Eagle, you know a cross between a Sky King and a Lone Eagle... I like it.

Unknown for me too. Great looking Bulova watch.

Here's the one I posted  a year and a half ago.  The dial and hands on mine are all wrong, but the case is the same as yours.  Even though flawed, I enjoy wearing it...
