Hello All...I just found a watch like this yesterday at an auction. My watch does not look as nice yet but it runs great. Is there a good way to remove the yellowing on the crystal? And what is the case metal for these models, it does not have anything other than Bulova Quality and the patent date.

The  yellowing on the crystal probably won't come off. If it's concentrated above the numbers on the dial it's actually a burn and was caused by the radiation from the lume on those numbers. Best case scenario...new crystal.

Look on the end of the case below the 6.

Between the lugs they are frequently stamped "GF" in this location.

We also have examples where the case is Bulova Quality and there's an "F" between the lugs, as well as examples with "GF" between the lugs.
Case serial number has six digits as entered.  Picture looks to show seven digits.  I'll update if I can read the full seven digit case SN.
