Cool, a rare Dewey!

Named for Admiral Dewey.

Here is an 1899 ad I found, along with an actual example. It is not Bulova but gives insight on the watch name to us non-Yanks who are useless at history!

We certainly haven't seen to many of these. Always amazes me how Bulova chose their model names.

Should record be updated to 1949 based on movement date code (A9)?
