I found a replacement dial in near mint condition for 10 dollars. When installing it i noticed it only has 60 & 30 printed in the sub second hand box.  Aaah  , I guess I'll leave it on..lol

Yep the 1938 Ranger is a different watch. I do recall we had either identified or discuss engraved Banker's previously. So I'm tentative 1938 Bulova Banker.

Crockett looks like a cotenter too, but the adverts states 17 Jewels.
