Can't find an ad, but suspect this is from the original Bulova 30 series, based on date and gold bezel ring.. Seems to be too early to be a Commander.

Geoff, does this one show "14KT Bezel" on the back?

Yes, the case back is identical.

I would say this is a match to the Bulova 30 'QW', as seen in this '63 ad, which calls for a SS case with 14k bezel. Aside from the hands, the dial looks to be a match also.

I think you nailed it Ken. If everyone agrees, this is a first for the database.

Sure looks like a match to me. Destintive lugs and a spot on description.
