 Nice model but Get rid of the yellow band though eh. Nothing like a clash of golds.....

You know Gary - I swore this was rose until I photographed it? Good news is I have a stash of NOS "Rosies"......just a question of which one gets attached to this fellow. Right now it's a toss up between the Forty Niner and the Golden Knight. Leaning toward the 'Niner.

You're right though, should have done that before......

 Good choice to have. I see the Golden Knight on many bulova watches, whatever looks best I suppose.

We now have an ad showing the Yellow Cased version of this model as the 'SQUADRON' "A" and the White Cased version as the 'SQUADRON' "C"

ad Dated 1957.

From this information one can deduct that the Pink Cased version is indeed the 'SQUADRON' "B"

3 ticks.
