I recently saw a 1949 Aeronaut 17J, 8AE with a black dial on ebay. It was listed as Vintage Bulova A9 Men's Wristwatch (view in completed auctions).
I saw three 1949 Aeronauts here on the site, but all three, including any adverts. showed a WHITE dial. I believe the one on the ebay auction was a newer, black re-dial.
My question is....did Bulova ever make a BLACK dialed '49 Aeronaut?
