Well... This guy is a bit rare and hard to find examples.  I found this guy a month or so ago and just got around to getting a good strap for it.  I think the lizard skin works well with it.

As this is the black tri-colored dial it would be the Bulova "Farragut" as the all white dial is the "Revere".

It's sporting hidden lugs and an interesting top loading case.  Almost like the bezel on the Photo-watch 11 years later.

Pretty cool watch all in all.

A seldom seen model in great shape. I like your choice of band.

1939 Farragut looks to be a match.

We have two of these currently ID'ed as Revere back in 2015 that should be re-opened for evaluation.

Bob, good pickup on the other two examples. I'll update accordingly.

Plains, that's a good looking watch and an excellent strap chose.
