This is my $12 Bulova..won her at auction on Ebay..2 deep scratches on Crystal. I could run my finger nail through it  they were so deep...But , Polywatch is some good stuff. I put a nice Admiral expansion band on her and she looks good..I believe this is open through crystal..cant find a place to separate case. would like to clean up the dial alittle..a little discoloration on the hour Markers..but , another great addition to my Jr. Collection...Uh, anyone know the name of this one...Love the black dial, and my sub second dial

Spotted that straight away, Will. Dial has different number arrangement too.

EDIT: Different hands too.( Alpha's in subject, Dauphines in advertised HE.)

EDIT: this ad from 1958 is closer. the watch on far right is advertised as available with charcoal dial. Though with different hands.

Another possibility is the His Excellency "E" from 1958.
