Additional Information

A little skeptical about buying this one, but I did it anyway.

No date code on the back of the case had me looking thru the 40's for it and when it got here I found an L5 on the movement and sure enough....1955 Minuteman. I wonder why they didn't put the L5 on the case? All 4 in the database are the same...no L5 on the case. 2 of them have, I believe, a 10BA movement and 2 have this 11AC. Glad I went with it either way, cool lugs.

The photo of the ad is from one in the database and I believe whoever posted it said the ad was 1956, I didn't find it when I looked.

I would have thought 40's as well with the missing date code.  Great job finding them in the DB and on the ID.  The ad might be in the partial ad section.

I wonder why Bulova didn't use the date code on these cases ?
