Hey Gary,

This is the NOT theTreasurer model, The Treasurer has chasing (engraving) around the perimeter of the bezel and different lugs. Both will take the same crystal as it's the same size.

I'm 99.99999% certain 'TREASURE' is a recurring typo or abbreviation for 'TREASURER' in the GS catalogues - unless We have something from Bulova confirming the name 'TREASURE'??

eg: a Bulova advertisement.

The Glass dimension listed by GS for the 'TREASURE' has been matched to Bulova ads showing the 'TREASURER' model on more than one occasion.

Shawn,

Yep, We've seen this scenerio on a couple of 'TREASURER's in the database:

GS names a Watch 'TREASURE' and a Bulova ad names it 'TREASURER' - on 3 occasions now if My memory is correct.

GS Typo.

No Mark, We simply haven't found an ad for the Treasure model. Crystal fits  the Treasurer, Ardsley and the Academy Award P. No how do you figure it's a typo, crystal data in unreliable.

Gi can you please re-add the crystal package image. Looks like there has been a hickup in the upload.

This watch has 3 stars yet it is ID'd as unknown. What happened to the ID?

May be another example of the Ardsley (1953 ad), like the two shown below, which are currently listed in the DB as a Brunswick and a Treasurer.
