Additional Information: 

This is a pretty nice 1950 natural gold case'd watch.  Runs well. 

We still haven't come up with a name for this guy yet.  All I can figure out is it's the unengraved Standish.

Now... does that make it a Standish variant... who knows.  There's no info out there as of yet.

Unfortunately the one bad thing about having a pile of light is that it over accentuates any brassing.  This actually isn't isn't even close to what the pictures show and you can barely see it in normal wear.

Nope.... none for this one nor the Standish which we ID'd by crystal because we had nothing else.

looking very similar to what is named a 'HADLEY' in the database http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1953-hadley-710 or is it, lug variant? Hard to tell from here.

Not a Hadley match for sure. No ad that I know of but there are engraved & non engraved models.

THIS WAS A COMMENT IN A POST ON THE STANDISH BY SCOTT LAST YEAR:

"AWE HA! 3/3 from 1950!!!

 

Ok... There's the Shoreham, Stanton and Standish. (All 1950+ varietals, I believe... that take the same crystals!) NOW, where the heck are the ads/Jewelers catalogs to discern which are what!? (DARN !!!)

SHOREHAM (1950)   STANDISH (1950)   STANTON (1950)

* Info. source: 1950 Perfit Catalog... (And none listed before '50 in the other trio of 1948/9 catalogs...)

HMMM... Alphabetical, from plain to most engraved bezel???  LOL..."

 

 

Hrmm okay so as of tonight because of the Spanish ad we know that the

Shoreham = All Engraved

and we're thinking the one engraved on just the sides

Standish = Engraved Sides Only

So... if you look at what crystal fits... this would be the

 Stanton = No Engraving

I think we have the 1950 Stanton!

Seems a bit problematic to name a model when you know that two watches take that crystal and neither of them has been identified through an ad.  Of the three--Standish, Stanton, and Shorham--only the Shorham has an ad showing what it looks like.

IMO, this watch, and all those named "Standish", should be considered unknown, now that we have a third model taking the same crystal.
