Admin requested when someone assigns a two star rating we elaborate if not obvious?  This one has hang tag.  Model number on hang tag very similar to ad for other three Jet Star of same period in 1973 Ad on site. Maybe more I can't see on hangtag.  Two other Jet Star in DB w/ three stars as a "C" but it's unclear how they got the three stars w/o something stating what constitutes a "C" variant.  "Jet Star C" in DB under pull down model ID's, but not just "Jet Star".   Any ideas?

Yes, I agree the ID is 2 Star and is based on the model number and the traits of the Watch - 17J, Auto, Day/Date, Water resistant.

I have a request in to Bulova for confirmation and will update once received.

As always, thanks Fifth.  Two stars from me, awaiting word from Bulova.  Still seems contrary the other two records are three stars for "C" w/o known details of what consititutes the C variant.

That deployment band - does it have the Bulvoa emblem on it?  Is that what I'm seeing in the second picture?  Mark did you hear back from Bulova on this one?

Did you get the watch to update the case SN info?  Thanks
