 Unknown model. 1940 10ax 15j movement. At first I thought it one of those Bulova that were shop made, Ie had non Bulova signed cases but had Bulova movements etc. but I was surprised to receive it and the case is all signed by Bulova to, so a name must be out there somewhere. unrestored as received. fully working. photos will be updates when available. Crystal measures 20.1 x 20.1.

UPDATE

Name now found in 60th edition of the GS catalog as the "GOLDEN EXCALIBUR"

Gary, only thumbnails visible on this thread, none when trying to view the whole thread.

Looks like it is the REVERE in these 1939/1940 ads from LISA.

The thumbnail is still there, however note the square shape of Revere vs the rectangular shape of thumbnail for subject watch.

Edit: crystal dimensions are given as square 21.1 X 21.1, so it must be distortion in thumbnail- if this is even the thumbnail associated with subject watch.
