Has to be, it says so on the dial.

...not necessarily, in many models, this one included...but that may be one of the reasons why it orignally got ID'ed as such.

Yea, a possible change of model ID may have slipped though the cracks.  I think it's a WaterTite Duo-Wind "E", as does admin....as quoted below from his previous comments.

So I agree with Will that the subject watch is a WaterTite Duo-Wind "E".

One tick from me for non-confirmed, as IMO, it's almost confirmed to be something else :)

I can't recall Bulova ever putting anything on the dial that wasn't gospel.

What about this John?

It does not say DUO WIND on the dial, but that is what it is!

 

 Subject is still incorrectly named as we have a conflicting ad.

Watertite Duo Wind "E", as per ad and price list.
