I have never seen a Military with Bulova signed on the dial. That does not mean it was never done so I'm good with A17A Military.

Still needs the root record sorting out, main watch date/movement type.

Can we have a movement pic showing the date please? Or confirmation of date letter/number.

Update:

Date code on the movement is possbly M7. Movement is 10BNCH. There's a new pic of the movement, which isn't much better, but there it is.
