Well this is a first for me.  I've never had this model before though I've spied it a time or two.

I believe this to be the 1952 Harrington.  He's not often seen, but when he is it's usually described as "Sea Shell Lugs".

The men's bracelet on this watch is a "<JB> Champion" and looks to be the original as per the advertisement showing it from 1951.

Pretty unique and really sharp.

That is a sharp looking watch, original band, and looks to also have the faceted crystal - nice 1952 Harrington

Wow it is fabulous plains. This beauty really looks unworn. It's exciting to see there 'rare birds". You're really scoring these last few weeks. That band is original

Harrington.

Wow, with an original band to boot! What a great match to the advert. The watch is on great condition too. Did it come like that or did you pull out the old polishing cloth?

1951 Bulova Harrington it is.
