Hmmm...

 

Most likely either  "Senator" or "Ambassador" case/dial variant... Scalloping on the top/bottom of the bezel, typically means SENATOR... HOWEVER I suspect this one... is an AMBASSADOR model? Or perhaps even a more unique, namesake?? Time will tell, eh?!?

Scott...I'm thinking the same thing.  I need to keep looking for some '50s ads.

'SENATOR' variants to the letter 'W' in 1959 = 23 variants and 11AC was the movement used..

Senator "H", 1956 ad.

Clearer ad without the variant letter here:http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/uploaded_photos/user2196/K1%20Dec.%201956.jpg

Does look like the Senator...actually w/ dial resembling Senator "H" ad.  I'd be good with either Senator "H" (or Senator) vs unknown.
