These watches are small, only a 22.6 mm crystal is used, and if I remember right the old ORD size watches take a 26.2 mm crystal, even looking at the full ad referenced above, the "Nighthawk is about the same size as the Blackhawk/Surgeon case, and that is fair sized.

If we can get some size spec's on the Air Warden & Watertite for a comparison it would help...until then, Unknown Boys Watch.

We have 1941/42 adverts showing the watch as a Nighthawk and 1942/43 ads showing as an Air Warden.

So if the case and movement date to 1941, then it a Bulova Nighthawk for me.
