Hi Bill - I think you're close. This is the Miss America you referred to:

I think this is your watch - The Concerto

We also have a good example in the db: http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1962-concerto-3312

Geoff,

You are probably correct. What confuses me is the dial. If you notice, the dial in the Concerto ad has all of the numbers 1 - 12. The dial on the watch I submitted has every other number, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 with hash marks in between. Was it common to use different dials on a given model? The case on the Concerto definitely looks more like my watch than the case on the Miss America.

Bill

Good catch Bill, that does present a bit of a conundrum. I'm not sure what to make of the dial difference. Let's do some more research, I see that the example watch I linked to has the same dial as yours.

I agree with Geoff. The Concerto did come with dial variants. We see a 'BS' variant in the part adverts. That one has numbers at 12 3 6 9 and hashes for the rest.

I'm good with tentative Concerto.
