Additional Information

This unknown was from a watchmakers lot sold out of his personal safe.  Along with a couple of other Bulova unknowns. 

Unusual hidden lugs.  I've seen another example of this model recently on the bay.... but I've yet to see and ad for this 21 Jewel anywhere.

I don't find that ad in the database, and the text is unreadable, but it looks like a possible match shooter.

Good catch, does it say 'JEFFERSON' ?

*ad dated 1959

 

I would have guessed an 'AA' variant.

Jerin,

looks like an L5 on the mvt ?

Just a scrunchy looking 3 I think.  Caseback is pretty hailed but says L3 as well.

Interesting to see a "case number" stamped on the back of this watch above the serial number.
