Additional Information

This is probably my new favorite watch. Another one that I discovered last week I had never entered into the dB. It first glance I thought "well, that's not a Bulova case". Imagine my surprise when I opened it. Double row of engraving on the bezel seems atypical for Bulova but there is no doubt is's genuine. Dial restored by IDC (maybe three years ago)

I failed to note that I have never found and advert match nor is there a match in the Unknown section of the dB.

It is a beautiful watch!  I looked on newspapers for awhile last night and didn't find anything either. 

Unknown for now.

After hours or re-searching...I've decided to name this model "Time Machine"  after the device Geoff keeps using to find these beauties :-)

This would look real sharp on the wrist!
