It took me a while to find this one, as the movement is actually a 21-jewel movement. With that, I found this as the Martha Washington C.

The 21 jewel movement would use that triangular cap jewel, so record needs to be changed from 17 to 21. I think I also see an engraved 21 on the bridge.

It won’t let me update it to 21 jewels

No worry, one of us will update the jewel count once we get the name finalized and posted.

The 17J had me stumped but yes I see 21J on tthe movement.  1957 Bulova Martha Washington "C" looks to be a good match.
