Good call Mark, looks like the date could be 54,55 or 56 to me. Just too hard to make out.

Navigator works for me if the date is right.

Mark, you have one of these too. Do you want me to send you my case opener and you can send it back when you'r finished??

JP  I'm not seeing the pic of the case back opening tool.  The 4th picture in root record (stamped Bulova Watch Company, Made in France) looks like the inside of the case back, not a tool/key.

...and 1956 Navigator from me too.
