Again I believe this to be a 470 just in a natural gold color.

The case is marked:

Cashier

Gold Filled

Case Made in Canada

Extra

Of all the watches in what I believe to be the Model 470, I've seen about a third of at least 15 watches marked with this symbol.

The chain hoop (not sure of the correct name) looks different from the 470. This may be an other model. Bulova had to have plenty of pocket watches, but we just don't see many adverts for them.

I'd be tentative on the model 470.

Rev Rob - correct me if I'm wrong. The correct term is "bow".

I've always referred to it as the bail, like the handle of a bucket or pail.

I'll go tentative 470, noting the rounded/square difference in the bottom of the loop.
