Maybe a 1951 Ruxon with a variant dial?

Look at the 1951 ad here on the bottom in the right middle.

Wow, Just got rid of a Ruxton Automatic I had..Had a feeling it was related to Bulova..saw a crystal that was for either the Bulova or Ruxton..

I have to leave a comment...looking for the name of this Model..This may be my oldest watch yet..I have a few old Benrus watches..and an old Westclox..but I think this is it.

Please clarify the following entries.

Manufacture Year: <<<<<<<< How did you determine the date?
1951 ?
Movement Model: <<<<<< What is the 37 suffix? 10BT sounds ok.
10bt37 ?
Movement Jewels: <<<<<<<< Recheck for a typo-17 jewels maybe?
7 ?
Movement Serial No.:
363727
Case Serial No.:
373621
Case shape: <<<<< Looks like a Tonneau shaped case to me.
Rectangle
Crystal Details:

curvex..retangle

In order to aid in the correct ID we need to have the basic facts correct. Pictures of the case, dial and movement are also very helpful.
