Tentatively a 1950 Harrington.

The case is marked "Bulova New York".  It's got a 10 K rolled gold plate bezel with a stainless back.  The movement is an 8AC with 17 jewels, consistent with others in the database.  The date code is L1 (1951).

Picked it up relatively cheap on eBay.

Yessss.... the Harrington.  I remember finding that ad... so cool... we could finally stop calling it the "Seashell Lug Watch" 😄

I love it. Possibly one for the most unconventional case designs of the 1950's. Nice snag Tom - 1950 Bulova Harrington

Can't argue with the unique case matching the advert. Will be nice to one day find another advert now that we have a name to search.
