Additional Information

It took me a while to figure this one out (what the heck is that?). White rolled gold plate with a two tone silver dial with alternating white gold numbers and squares. Period Hadley band added by me. Watch was received caked with grime and mounted on a worn out nylon striped band. A first for the database as seen in the 1958-1959 Linebook136,  Keeping excellent time.

Thanks, Kathy. This one had so much "DNA" encrusted on it, the case steps, bevels and lines were completely obscured. This apparently protected the watch from plating wear.

Looks to be a good match for the 1957 Bulova Ambassador "O".  Nice match to the bracelet too.
