Additional Information

I picked up a couple of duplicates.  This is one of them.  I will probably replace the crystal.  I have installed a band close to the original.

It has a 10k gold filled case date stamped L1.  The movement is also date stamped L1.  The dial is in pretty nice shape.  Like this one https://www.mybulova.com/watches/1951-academy-award-10537

Edited:  I replaced the crystal and redid the main photo.  The "FF" and "GG" take the CC287 or CC286-90.  I used a CC286-90
