Can you give us pictures of the movement and inside of case back. It looks like a 218 model in a strange case. Never seen one like it before.

Case design looks like a spin off of the 1959 Hamilton " Regulus " electric model.

Similar to the "Dior" watches. I love it, though it would have looked better with a back winder, and no crown.

Pretty sure I've seen this case shape as Bulova several times. Can't find one like it after searching 1970 - 1972 watches on site.  Don't see an ad for this shape.  I see watchophilia.com has a similar-shaped smaller "ladies" version listed as a Dior, but didn't see anything there matching this case.

I'm sure the advert will have the model. Does anyone have a higher res verison of the ad above?
