I think this one is a Douglas. I don't know if the white gold one's have a variant or not. I put a Suc 3 faceted crystal on it because that's the only one I had on hand. Rocket lists it as being for the "Douglas" along with a curved top crystal. I've also replaced the broken main spring that was in it when I received it.

I thought we ran down at least a tentative variant for the yellow gold Douglas with the charcoal dial?  I'll check further.

Actually I'd also like to know if this is white gold as that could be a factor for a variant as well.

I found this case in a jewelry lot.  It is a 10KT white gold filled Bulova watch case which I believe to be a 1950 Douglas.  It does not have a date code on it.  I took a side picture so you can see the crystal profile which is different that yours.  The case is for sale if anyone needs it.
