I was given my grandfathers watch a few years ago and would like to know more about it. Could someone please help me ID this watch and give me some info about it. Thanks everyone.

The case looks very much like the Bulova 30 in the ads.

http://www.mybulova.com/vintage-bulova-watch-ads?page=9  2nd row, 1st ad. Despite not having the Diamond dial that's where I'd put my vote. Very, Very nice and well worth getting it serviced, new crystal, band etc, and then I'd wear it!

This is a 62 add of a Beau Brummell ZZW . The dial looks good and its a 30 jewel. 14 KT gold ,self winding,water proof. Top row last on the right.

Checking out all of those ad's until your eyeballs start to bleed is paying off...next assigment...close your eyes and recite the date code symbols starting from 1924... : )
