This one was a surprise,low openng bid. I thought it was a "needs repair" HE and was basically bidding on the band (only bidder). It arrived today and  appears to be a 1947 American Eagle on the original band, based on lugs and face. It's also actually keeping reasonable time. No plating wear on bezel or band. A couple tiny marks in face.

Although we have yet to find an ad, we have been ID'ing these as American Eagle. Rose gold case with interesting Kreisler band end pieces with a spring bar at the first link. It is interesting that the first link is almost impossible to remove from the watch case without ruining it. The band detachment point is below to install either a matching bracelet band or leather. Makes me wonder if this is original and the watch was offered on a choice of leather or bracelet. I received it as seen.

Pretty clean and keeping time.

I picked up this "ladies" watch this week ; )  I can see why the seller might think that.  I just love these two tone grey dials.  I believe this is an American Eagle "D"

It is 10K yellow gold filled.  It has a working 7AP 21 jewel movement with an asterisk date symbol.  The dial is in nice shape.  I have temporarily put an 8mm grey leather band on it but hope to find a metal bracelet band for it at some point.

UPDATE: Watch was generously transferred to me by Kathy L. I have added a nice match period band to the watch as seen in last photo. The write-up and balance of photos are hers, I'm not going to mess with perfection........Thanks, Kathy.

Didn't see an ad for one but it does match this one in the database-

https://www.mybulova.com/watches/1948-american-eagle-1200

I went with the American Eagle vs His Excellency due to the top of the lugs forming a "square" vs an "L" shape like the His Excellency

Nice runner..needs a little cleaning and oiling but runs good.....crappy band

This watch was in my fathers things I went through after his passing. The watch is rectangular in a "10K gold filled" case, stamped on back, and also on back, opposite side is "6851010". The crystal had come loose and was taped on. The face has some discoloration but all there. The 3 hands, hour, minutes, and small second hand at bottom of face, are there and it will run for short periods but stops soon after. The band is brown leather with "GEMFX calf" stamped on back of band.  The movement has "21 jewels" stamped on it and a rectangle with "7AK" inside of it and a small square. Scratched inside the case back is "8-18-50" with a large flourish. under that is scratched "E9/17/54B" I am exicited to learn all I can about this watch, it could be my grandfathers, it's age will give me more clues.

Nice men's American Eagle here with matching date stamp and case number.

It's sporting a period B/R Bracelet, and I'm betting it came with it.

This is a watch i wanted for a long time and found it on Ebay.  It is my birth year watch and is what I believe to be a.1964 American Eagle F.   It is yellow gold plated.  It is marked M4 on both the case back and the movement.   I love the textured linen case, sheild dial with concentric ridges and star burst lines.  It has some discoloration on the dial and a replaced crown.
