Additional Information

Hi All,

I believe this is a variant of the "Engineer". This is as close as I could come. 1941 ad shows one nearly identical, but with Roman numerals. This has the two tone case and the other may not. Movent maeked "AAA" also. Crystal is acrylic. Case is Bulova10K Rose Gold Filled

Not always the case (dial that is), but possible.

Some models were offered with a variety of dials....I swear Bulova and Jewlers did this just to spice things up here at central :-)

Knickerbocker, Clinton and I think there's another but I'm drawing a blank. That bottom band would really set those models off. That's worth trying Wayne, you can always swap it back later.

Nice watches Wayne!!

Love those bands. I will have to find one.

Wayne are the barrels on your watches all silver or the middle gold and tips silver? Mine are all silver.
