Not sure if we have this advert already but shows the Bulova 'Lord Springfield' model from 1948.

Interesting ad from 1944.  The dial is unusual as the minute track is in 5 min intervals vs the regular military issue that has a 10 minute interval tracker.   The closest dial match appears to be these unknowns but without the shading showing in the ad.  Could be a stock photo of a non-bulova watch but thought it was worth posting just in case.
