Additional Information

This Bulova has an oval case with squared courners around the crystal ( crystal is missing). 12 at the 12:00 then line indices all around the rest of the dial with the exception of the 3:00 and 9:00 which has double lines.  Small second hand at 6:00. Diagonal lines run through the dial from all the indices except from the 3:00 to the 9:00.  The case is 10 K RGP with a stainless steel back.  I do not know the history of this watch.  I searched through all of the pictures from 1958 through 1965 and could not find one like it.  I also searched the adverts for the late 50 - early 60's with no results.

I don't think we've found an ad for this one, yet. I have seen this design a few times, so would be nice to identify it.

I like the look of this one. We have a couple versions of it in our Unknown section, a white gold model and one that looks to be yellow.

Hello Fine Times, welcome to mybulova. I really like the lines of this one, really different from the norm.

Sorry, same here. 1963 Unknown (for now).

It is an interesting case design.  I didn't find an ad for it unfortunately.

Maybe a version of the American Eagle?  It seems to be the only model that has the lines on the face joining the markers.
