I see Murial case with other dial, dial or the whole movement seems to be replaced

Dear TexasLady, your watch is the Muriel. It was only advertised once in 1928. The models I have seen typically have an oval minute marker, while the ad shows a tonneau shaped minute marker. As Jabs indicates, the dial on your watch (like the 6754) is most likely not original. So you might want to consider to use that oval dial you had in mind for the 6754 to restore this watch, depending on the year of that movement. I have seen models up to 1929 for the Muriel. Success!

Agree with the other comments, dial likely not to be original, but shouldn't be too hard to find a correct replacement.

This is a first for the database of this style and looks great with the extended ends.

Another early high-end beauty!!

I had one like this, with the wrong dial, and I sent it to International with a scan or drawing of the correct chapter ring, and they were able to do it correctly. 

Muriel case with dial swap, possibly the whole movt with dial.

Another early beauty. I agree with comments above -

1929 Muriel - noting face replacement.

This is another one far too early, nice and seldom seen to send to the "island of misfit toys" (non-conforming)

As always, I wonder who was making these marvellous cases for Bulova, this is truly a work of art.
