Additional Information: 

1963 Bulova Craftsman "D" 21J 8AC with a M1 date code, 10K Gold filled bezel & caseback, Silver dial with Gold applied numbers/markers and Gold hands, Leather Crocgrain strap.

The ID is tentative, but nothing else in my newer crystal books lists a square 19.3 x 19.3mm crystal, and the 21J movement/Gold filled caseback is consistent with the Craftsman model watches.

The bezel on this one is quite unique for a early 60's watch.

ID still based on crystal specs, with a fairly common crystal size.  I don't remember how it got ID'ed to the "D" variant?  
I'm at one tick for not confirmed, and would be so either with or without the variant.
