Additional Information: 

The BULOVA FRANKLIN, Circa 1946... 17 Jewels, likely 10 kt. gold filled case? This model was soon replaced (Christmas of 1947) with the "A" model and a new powerplant, if I read the (blurry) movement model, correctly? (As par, for Bulova... new name, different movement, upgraded dial, more options, same case...)

I have an image of a 1949 new, old Jeweler stock showing this model with a case # of 31751 tagged as being a 'BRUNSWICK'.

and a card ad, Date unknown, showing it as the 'FRANKLIN' ?

* Card ad would be 1948 and prior at least, I would guess.
