Yup, saw that site and they go quite high there. Everybody wants a cool vintage watch!

My vote is yes for Minute Man. Mine was the same and got three ticks

Why didn't this watch get three ticks??

Probably because there is no ad to back it up JP, only a reference picture with a hang tag and the claim that it is NOS, and those can be attached to any watch along with the box.

Maybe we have some new ads that will help the ID?

JP  I don't see your Minute Man record.  Did the name change in your record mentioned above?

This Case in Yellow appears to be the "BANKER"

Quick change of mind, not the Minute Man.

Banker, as in this April 1967 ad.http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/uploaded_photos/user2196/0001_0.gif

This December 1968 ad has a better pic of the same model.

No Will, when I sold it I removed it from the records. I didn't think we wanted watches in there that were no longer available to discuss and have the owner look for something on the watch.

Thanks John  It's the information, not the watch that is important on site.  You didn't do anything wrong by deleting, but please don't delete any watch records - the info is still good.  As long as it's not against the site rules to delete things, it's "OK".  Or to go one step further, even if it's against the "rules", as long as members have the ability to delete- it's still "OK". 
This is a major issue with me, and if folks can still delete records and/or comments, then Stephen and I have to have a little type, as this is how collective discussion and knowledge dissapears from the Bulova world....  as long as folks can delete- these things will happen.
