Another beauty Dennis.  We have another same year ID'ed as such here
I'm good w/ 1953 Byron ID.  Wonder if we have an ad in the new 1950"s decade thread which states jewel count or other details?

Thanks Bobbee  I see this one from 1955 here http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/uploaded_photos/user2196/BYRON%20ad_0.jpg
But no jewel count and not much more info than the ad in Plains record/example.  I'm still searching the 1950's decade forum...

The Byron ad from Bobbee (linked above) was published in 1955, but it looks like it used older information/copy, as the price of Byron increased from $39.75 to $42.50 by at least November 1954.
