Additional Information: 

I believe this piece to be a Thayer, regardless of my inability to find print ads that specifically clarify it as such. Absence of evidence is, of course, not evidence of absense.

Original case with two orginal bands.

Duo-Wind movement keeps excellent time.

Gosh, Geoff. 1952 New Old Stock. I think your  Water-Tite box goes with it. There should have also been a teal tag with it with little bubbles drawn on it. The tag said "The Bulova 'Water-Tite'  Self Winding Watch."

 

Anyway. This one has been sitting in a drawer for it's entire life. It measures 30mm without the crown.

 

What's the measurement on your '52, Geoff?
