That is an amazingly clean watch. NOS or serviced? Original band as well....very nice!

Certainly agree with it being a 1951 Bulova Windsor

It's serviced.

The dial that it originally had was not great, but I was able to miraculously find an NOS dial for it last year.

The crystal had scratches but cleaned up well after careful polishing off-the-case.

The movement had some rust on the set lever and yoke (replaced), but the base and set bridge were rust-free.  A new alloy mainspring was also installed.

The case outer was filthy and needed thorough (but very careful) cleaning.

That is fantastic.... one of my first Bulova's was one of these guys.  I love this style of watch.  We couldn't find the name for quite awhile.  I'll agree with the Windsor.
