Very handsome watch Will. The other pics did not come thru. Would love to see more of it.

That is the type of step that is on my 35 unknown, if only it had engraving it would be a match. My vote on this one is tentative Commander until I can see more of the watch.

1936 ads. Different papers, different dates. The unengraved Commander dates to November 1936, the Hudson ads both date to October 1936.

Confused? I know I am. Typical bloody Bulova!

Then again, it looks like it could be the strap making the difference in the name, as it seems to with the Ben Hur/Calhoun.

This last post has not been put in the "recent comments" list for some reason, so I will post this and see.

Older record Bobbee. Sometimes older records don't show up in recent comment queue.  A while ago there were three working pictures.  Yesterday there were 2.  Now it shows only one pic, and I think I sold this watch (or lost it in a box somewhere).

This is a 1937 ad for the Hudson.
