Jewel count is off by one jewel. 

Two ticks for Diplomat due to the jewel count.

Certainly a distinctive case different from the Ambassador or Envoy. 

Diplomat it is.

I love the naming series. Similar or same casing for Ambassador, Envoy and Diplomat.

EVERYTHING about that case back is interesting!! Have we EVER seen anything like that? Throw a SIXTEEN jewel movement in it, add APPLIED numbers (as opposed to painted) to the dial and it's a pretty unique Bulova

Agree with Diplomat ID, wonderful watch.
