1965 Bulova Rawlings 17J 7BPP movement date stamped M5, 10K RGP bezel & back, date stamped M5, 2-tone White & Silver dial with Gold applied markers, no sub-seconds on this one!

Very interesting case style very similar to the tentative Craftsman in the early 60's, but larger in size. (last picture), and this one has the tiny 7BPP movement.

The crystal is a perfect snap fit and fits the slight crystal groove curvature and should merit a 2 star tentative rating until a ad comes along to back it up.

What a great looking watch Greg - I love this thing! The neat thing about the row of watches on display at the top of the page is that I would have totally missed this beauty had it not just popped up there this morning.
