Can you please confirm the back case serial number? Also if possible can you please post a photo of the inside movement. Having some additional information might allow us to confirm an ID.

The dial on your watch is very unique and not often seen, so trying to establish if it was a custom job or something Bulova actually produced is the aim in helping us provide and accurate ID.

Not having heard back from owner I suggest this be ID'd as Unknown. I'm not 100% certain the dial is original Bulova.

The owner is a business owner and college professor who is very busy with start-of-semester activities. As soon as he is able to SAFELY remove the back of the case he will update this post. Please have patience.
