The BULOVA "CADET," Circa 1944. Hereafter are two watches that both appear to be "Cadets?" However the '44 varietal has the plain bezel design... Whereas the '48 version sports engraving!
Assuming these watches are both authentic... I then suspect that the 1948 watch is therefore NOT the military "pledge..." but rather another model... sporting the same proven dial design, engraving and a new powerplant, released perhaps in 1948... following the successful reintroduction of the manly sounding "Bruce" model (after the war) in either December of '45 or 46? (My Bruce ad is dated 1946? So > either <or??)
Furthermore... there are at least two other "civilian" sounding models, that take the same crystals, aside from the seven jewel "Walton," from 1948. They are the "MAXIM," and the "RODERICK." I therefore believe the latter 1948 watch pictured, is one of those two models???
