It's been a great week for buying.  Found another one I've been coveting for quite awhile.  I snagged this bad boy for under $30 this morning.

I'm going with the American Eagle, obviously a variant, but I don't think we've ever figured out which this one is.  So... I'm thinking American Eagle generic?  I know Greg has a very nice example of this model in the database already.  HERE.   I'm happy to have the second one!

I'm just guessing the movement as the seller doesn't have a picture.  These are again the sellers pictures and I will take new ones when I get the watch in.

Additional Information: 

1960 Bulova American Eagle's in 10K White and Yellow RGP with Stainless backs. Both have White satin dials with applied markers & hands corresponding to the bezel colors. Both have M0 17J 11AF movements, and have the "hooded" bottom lugs.

I picked these up for a song as non-working watches from a seller that just wanted to sell stuff, all they needed was a bath and lube. I will replace the hands when I can find some, they look good when on the wrist, but the macro setting really picks up the corrosion on them. The straps are Speidel padded genuine leather.

* 8-9-12 edit these to generic American Eagles, it looks like Bulova used the entire alphabet for variants on these!
