Additional Information

Oh boy howdy is this one a survivor.  The American Clipper with original bracelet and original display case.  The watch has been used as it does show wear here or there, but boy has it sure been taken care of over the years.  The display case while it has seen better days, actually isn't horrible.  It'd give it a 5/10.

I believe the bracelet gives this a different variant name, the Bulova Ameriacn Clipper "F" seen below. How's that for an ad... sitting in the box it's in now!
