'CRUSADER' and 'CRUSADOR' are one and the same Watch, the attempt was to clarify the model Name spelling.

 

Bulova could not have installed a Movement Dated 1930 into a Case manufactured in 1929 in 1929 as the Movement did not yet exist. The Movement manufacture Date trumps the Case manufacture Date in this instance.

1930.
