Welcome aboard Anthony. Your Movement Model is 10AX as seen on your movement.

Here's a '42 supporting ad for the Surgeon.

Oh, the "off-set" center seconds you mentioned in your description is referred to as "counter-balanced".

To all, i appreciate the verification of the watch. Learnt something new, cheers Darhin.
I saw the catalogue you've linked, my next vintage Bulova hunt will be the Black Hawk! She's a beaut! Hopefully they are still around for sale.
Sadly they aren't as available in Australia.
