Additional Information

This looks like at 1938 Minuteman.   It has a 10KT Yellow Gold filled case that measures 43MM x 22MM and shows no engraving.   The movement is a 7AP 17J with a crescent moon date code.  The dial is white with applied yellow gold hour markers and hands.  It appears to have the original leather strap.   The crystal is ill fitting and I need to order a new one.

Band could very well be the original based on obvious age and ad. Nice!

Yes the band could be original and that is very cool.

Certainly looks like a Bulova Minute Man "C" (non engraved version), but the dial looks a little off. Is that the case or is it just me?

It’s the Crystal.   It is a wrong Crystal with a tapered end causing an illusion .

That is the wrong crystal. You didn't get that from me did you?

I'm sure I have the correct one PM me.
