Another new model, perhaps?

 

Do you have the crystal proportions, within .5mm square?? I likely have a crystal/s for this model???

Photos of back case and inside movement please. It would be good to establish that the case is in fact a Bulova.

I was looking through the database and came across this ad I noted the following:

1949 ad

movement code A9 hence 1949

the case looks similar

the dial looks some what however the number four on my watch looks different but the number 7 looks like the one on the "playboy". I leave this to the Bulova masters of knowledge for consideration.

Also the hands are off but I have secured some bulova parts(many parts) and I believe I have the correct hands.

I would like to give this watch a name. As noted on previous post the UNK data base is full.

I agree that you should change this from unknown to "Playboy"...

Pretty obvious, it's a "Playboy"
