 1941 Bulova Unknown 17J 10AX movement, Clean 10K RGP Bezel and Stainless Back, Nice Off White Dial and Gold hands, B/R 12K Gold Filled Band. Very Nice Good Running Watch!


This watch was previously ID'd as a Ambassador "A", but after acquiring a 1939 Ambassador and compairing the two, it belongs in the unknown catagory for now until another  Lone Eagle "A" ad shows up. ;-)

AMBASSADOR 'A' and 'C' shown in the ad above are the same Watch - the Dial is the variant and all oher attributes will remain the same.

This is very basic stuff.

In reply to by FifthAvenueRes…

No one ever argued otherwise, Fifth.  Perhaps if you're going to insert pointless, snotty comments in a discussion that occurred 12 days ago regarding issues that were clearly already resolved, you should first read the prior posts more carefully.

Lone Eagle "A" or "B" and Ambassador 1939

Having them both side by side makes a difference! ;-)

Yours & Jerins side by side, How much difference is there in the measurements?

When I measured mine, I didn't pull the crystal, band or case back, so I could be slightly off.

 I don't know if any progress was made on identfying this watch but I believe that it is a Lone Eage with the original band.  The line on the lugs just ourboard of the  band as well as two lines on the band link are indicative of the Lone Eage for this year.

The Ambassador did not have any line on the lugs and the metal bracelet has the 3 lines on the link that attaches to the watch lugs.

Here is the ad - 1941 - everything but the engraving is shown in the ad

The rings on each end of the lugs was an indication that the watch in question was originally designed for a leather strap or  a bracelet. I have examples of both and no engraving but that may be the defining trait to id this watch as a LE A.

The A and C do have one other difference Mark, one has the rings on the ends of the lugs. (see above mention).

Also, check the listing for my 41 ambassador and the comments in the string of the posting.

Engraved LE, with leather band.

Should be a variant with the link band too.
