Hello rosscoe888, welcome to myBulova. These older Bulova can be tricky to identify, this one looks like it might have a military origin.  Can you give us a couple more photos? One of the back of the case and perhaps one of the inside of the case back would help identify it. Do you know anything of the history of the watch?

Thanks.

Hi Geoff,

So far these are the only pics I have as I am yet to receive it from an eBay seller.  As far a s I have been able to tell it has been ID'd as a Watertite, a Medico and a Practitioner but it seems to fit the 'unknown' status IMHO.

Thanks for your message, I'm looking forward to bringing this piece back from the dead!

Cheers,

Ross

Panel, your thoughts?

I'd say Practitioner, also. I'd also say the hands have been swapped out, these do not match the watch. The Practitioner model would have had a pair of gold hands with a contrasting sweep second for ease of readability.

I'm going to go with Unknown as with the main difference with the dial.

I have seen this exact model elsewhere described as 'unknown' too.  It's due to arrive soon so I wil post a few more pics and remove the movement to see inside the case for further clues?
