I've only just noticed the cut-out in the rotor is a capital B! Are they all like that?

For the record, before someone makes the statement. Bulova 'have' in the past put the model name on the dial.

Could still be the watch name. What about the Rubaiyat watch, and the Rubaiyat Watch Co.?

I suppose a tentative International is better than an unknown.

International was/is a division of Bulova Corporation and not a model name.

Really? I don't think any of us were aware that you had undeniable proof that it is not a model name.

Bobbee,

Is there an ad to show this Watch is a Bulova 'International'?

Is there an ad to show the Model name of 'International' exists?

"Seller specifies the watch is only sold outside the U.S. and that is where the name comes from."

The evidence to Date is against 'INTERNATIONAL' being a model Name, not for.
