Based on the case serial number (which overrides the movement) I agree withe  a
1938 Bulova Minute Man 'E' (engraved version).

GS crystal number is MT 366-10.

I also would have that crystal in glass if you are interested.

I have some MT-366-10 and do not like the stepped up sides on them.  Is there another in-expensive one w/out them sides that will fit or close enough to alter.   I have a problem fitting the glass ones.

 How much are the glass ones ?

Others share your feelings on the high profile look on vintage watches, myself included. I prefer the smooth fitted look and superior optiics from the glass crystals.

Fitting glass is a process . It's not difficult . Just has a learning curve. Or you can send me your case and I can supply the crystal and fit it for you .

Prices of crystal due vary but are not much different than the acrylic.

This one would be $12 plus shipping.

I have a few of these and another 1 coming that may also need a crystal.   I'll know then what to do.

it's getting where I feel I have to go to home depot and get a sheet of plexi glass. lol

 I know what you mean. As your collection grows so do your requirements. And ones that looked good at first start to look shabby when put next to a new one.

Let me know when you are ready. Shipping costs can be mimimized by orderig muliple items at one time. So make a list and we can check them off.
