Talk about a Can of Worms. LOL

Nice watch GJ, whichever model it may be....

The only ads I've ever seen to date show the Senator as having a White Dial with Gilt applied Numerals. Discussion started here: http://www.mybulova.com/node/1442

I'm familiar with the Spencer, where did You get Radio City as I'd be very interested in learning more?

 Radio City and one other name I found but lost  popped up through crystal catalogs as all taking the cmy311 crystal. Going on logic I think I have the Radio City here too which i'll post soon. The logic being that it is engraved and as the Broadcaster range were all also engraved I would think the Radio city would be related in some way....but who knows with Bulova! All in all who knows what the above model is. 

I do know that the original dial was on it and in the exact same design as this restored one.
