I think this may be an Ambassador. This belongs to a customer and is not slated for any work, just recording the watch for posterity.
17j 10BT from the AS 1200 ebauche.
In reply to Rob - is it possible this is by Geoff Baker
It's certainly a match for the 1953 Bulova Ambassador, and the series did continue on in this squared style at least up to 1958.
At the moment I'm thinking 1958 Bulova Ambassador until we prove that it wasn't available in this configuration at this time.
Any history on the watch Rob?

It is a good match to the Ambassador "E", and I find this model in ads up through 1956. The pricelists still show this model number into the 60s; but all of the ads post '56 show the automatic versions of Ambassadors. Tentative with 1958 date, but if 1953 is correct then I am good with the "E" variant.
