Additional Information

 I forgot to take a good photo of the inside case info!!!  This is a very strange case- to get the movement out of the watch you need to twist the bezel/stem/movement about 20 degrees counter-clockwise.  And it is verrry tight- I kept thinking I was going to break the bezel.  If anyone has a source for crystal/case gaskets for this one I need a new one.

 

Anyway- this is one of my favorite daily wearers- and when I finally took it apart for service it looked like the last person had just shot bearing grease into the case, it took a while to clean.  I love the linen textured dial, and even though the hands have lost their lume they still look pretty good.

Hey Matt, do you have a pic of the inside caseback straight on, and a pic of the caseback itself? I have the same kind of watch, but different bezel.

Kinda looks like a Non-Bulova case, but can't tell for sure......
I doubt we will ever find a Point Of Sale model name for this beauty.....if its a non-conforming case.
