Additional Information: 

This watch is a miniture version of the Bulova Surgeon.  As it's a woman's style watch, it has always been known as a Nurse's Watch.  Recently an ad was found naming this the American Nurse.  That works out well!

This particular watch has been double stamped with the Omega -1940 and Astrick -1941 which has been handstamped over.

It sports a 17 Jewel, 7AM movement and the case while worn in a couple spots shows excellently.

Look at all the wonderful watchmakers marks in that case.  It must have been well taken care of in it's 70 years of existance.   This watch sets and runs well.

Thanks boss... I found it looking for names of those Ladies Bulova's I picked up.

I have a American nurse listed in the 42-50 BB catalog, but the crystal dimensions are smaller, 13.45mm x 13.45mm and the crystal is tonneau shaped instead of square, but I like the American Nurse name better than the Lido B.

Mark - there might be something wrong with your keyboard? Just the one letter came through? What was it you were saying?

Great find Jerin but not so fast on that ID, There is also an ad calling it "Canadain Nurse". lol

Moving to 1945, We have an unknown using the same case in 14K Rose GF, Copper dial and different movement.

And Again in 1951, 10K yellow RGP,stainless back.

Just for grins and giggles...........Gruen made one too ....with longer lugs and lumed dial/hands.
