Looks like an A-11 to me.  I don't think that the crown is original but perhaps someone else can enlighten me.

No question it's an Military Issue A-11. Regarding the crown it's hard to be certain but it does look a bit different comparing it to other A-11 in the dB. These seem to be among the most faked watches out there. This one looks original. Nice watch Bob.

Thanks Geoff, I think the crown is a replacement when I compare it to the Bulova ORD that I have.  That said, the crown on the ORD watch is worn very smooth, so it can be difficult to wind.
