Panel Members - the name "Champ" has been suggested. My only concern is having an advert to support that name.

Thoughts?

Tentative 1935 Bulova Champ for now. It's as good as name as any until such time we can confirm.

The image below is from the G-S Flexo Fancy Crystal catalog dated July 1, 1953.  Unless anyone is aware of the existence of "Auto Watch "C", could this be it? "C" = Champ?

I'm sure I have a crystal that will fit that . It would be a glass one. 

Check the measurements to see if 26.3mm X 17.4mm with a slight curve from the top to the bottom. will work.

I don't think I need a crystal as I have already had one made and I also have the originsl( the one that was on the watch when I found it, which is yellowed) . Not sure how we started talking. Bout the crystal. Best Ed

I referenced the crystal because the list I found made mention of a watch name that could possibly be the actual name of your watch - Auto Watch C. Thought I would throw it out and see what everyone thought of the possibility.
