Surf or Storm King?

I remember a white dialed Senator with numbers like that too I think. I'll have to look when I get home.

I saw the senator, looks the same to me.   I wonder if it has the U.S. Zone stamped on the inside.

I was about to say a Bulova Midnight Clipper, but they all have a 2-4-6-8-10-12 dial combo.

Still looking for this one.

It most certainly does. Great pickup.

1956 Bulova Senator 'FW' it is for me. Curious if the 'FW' model relates to the unique band design.
