I know it's not a Bulova, but this "bandwheel" is a great addition, as you can see which style band matches your vintage Bulova!

Attached to the top Sutton ad above was a watch called the Gedney, but is known on this site as the

AMBASSADOR/EVERETT!

After more searching, I came across several more naming it the Gedney, in four seperate States in the US.

Maryland advert.

   

     Oklahoma advert.

 

      Pennsylvania advert.

 

 

    So, along with the Texas advert that has been snipped, but I still have the original pdf file for, that is four ads in four states, with a couple more in the same states.

        What is going to happen now? We have THREE different ID's for this watch!

 

  Just to make it interesting, I found this 1959 ad too.
