Is there something stamped on the inside case back, or is that just jewelers markings?

Looks a lot like an Air Warden.

Its a nice looking watch, the case, dial, hands, & lume still look great!

Same case size as this one, http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1946-unknown-1689

Big for a ladies of the era, and small for a mans size, maybe these were marketed for boys? Nothing like having a watch just like Pa's or Uncle Frank's when they came home from the war?

I think these were for boys. I gave my Son this exact same watch few years back. Looks much better with Bluesteel hands.

I didn't even consider that ! But makes perfect sense for the time period.

We don't have Case dimensions for the 'NIGHTHAWK' listed, until now.

We do have Case dimensions for the 'AIR WARDEN' which I believe We have confused with one another more than once.

26mm
