1940 rather than 1930 I think.  The 10AE is not around in 1930 and the stainless caseback would be out of place.  I have one just like it with a 10AX and a different but design matching bracelet.

 Thank you not sure how I missed the obvious on that one! As a member of this site once said

"The best way to get the right information on the internet is to post WRONG information"

- now.....about the name for this rascal.......

It must be true because it is on the internet.

One like it was posted a couple or few months ago and never got an ID.  I have been looking to name mine also but so far no luck.

5th - this case back is the type the mvmt drops into. It is signed on the outside end adjacent to where the springbar goes through the bracelet - "Bulova Quality" on the opposite end is the s/n.

1943 GS catalog has an MX318-25 20.6x15.6 slightly bent from 12-6, flat 9-3 and names the model as "Winston". No Winstons in ad db nor watch db.
