New Old Stock 10K RGP Yellow with Stainless back. I'm not sure if the box is correct peiod but it came with the watch. Kreisler 1/20 GF / Stainless expanding bracelet. This is the FIRST NOS Bulova I ever bought and is the cause of my LIFE  LONG affliction. Of course the first Bulova I ever OWNED - and still do - is a 1960 Solid Gold Bezel automatic my father gifted to me when it was 15 years old ( and I was 20!!).

Sorry to revive such an ancient thread!  I have both the Engineer "B" and Minute Man "B" and I can confirm the Minute Man "B" takes the same CMC360 crystal.  My Minute Man "B" came with a cracked crystal so I removed it and measured it at 22.2mm x 22.2mm, same dimensions as specified for the CMC360 in the G-S catalog.

Hey Geoff,

That's what I have on them... I think that timepiece looks a tad bit "dressy" for an "Engineer?" But the way to be (more) certain is the pull the lid and measure the inside and outside of the bezel opening, I suspect?? (And/or have someone go through eBay and dept. store ads, etc.???)
