I purchased this watch with a description that follows:
"My dad had a Jewelry & Watch shop he opened in 1952. This watch is one of a few that didn’t sell way back then. They have been locked up in storage till now. Being 73 years young, the wife has been bugging me to get rid of my stuff and what had belonged to my dad. That I have been doing the last month+. This is a old new stock watch, it has been sitting for 60+ years."
After recieving this watch I absolutely agree with thisbman's story just a fantastic NOS watch.
I believe we have a 1949 Bulova Broadcaster
