The BULOVA ACADEMY AWARD "Z," Circa 1950. (Illustrated Jeweler's display ad, from 1950...) 

The images were cropped from Gary's ("GJ") photos.... 

My latest "hunch," is that distinctly encased models such as the "S" & the "Z" here (which take the same crystals, BTW) are merely gold curtain, and silver curtain, respectively??? (So I put a B & W = the "S" for "Silver" model, on eBay!)

And the Ladies Model illustrated in this ad, is the Academy Award "B" model...

 

Best :-)  Scott

G' Day Stephen,

 

Two more for archive, eh? I think that makes (5) MORE, this week? 

 

TOP THAT... FALCONer FALCONable!? (Wink..) Hey... The "Top watches" rank dropped back to 6 (from 3) since there aren't 100 new watch models going up a week... and Jerin isn't adding new ads and Forum speak, almost daily!? Guess he hit his " watch quota," for May, eh?!? LOL...
