Additional Information

Hi, guys.

So this one is a mystery to me.  Its 1959.  I'm calling it a Hancock based upon the ad but given the level of detail I wouldn't swear to it.

Thanks.

Hello,  I think your watch is a SVP III like this one https://www.mybulova.com/watches/1959-svp-7592?

That does look an awful lot like it. It's got the same face on it as well.  As I look at it, the top part of the bezel on the Hancock has a little upward curve to it that the SVP III (and my watch) doesn't have to my eye.  

Good catch, there, I think.

Good advert find Kathy. All aspects look to match the Bulova SVP III.
