Neat watch that I am unfamiliar with. What does it say above "Bulova Watch Co. on the movement? Is the movement stamped either USA or Swiss?

As stated before there is no import code on the movement and no serial number on the back.

Also looking for a crystal number if anyone has the book.

At present, my only guess would be to lump it into the designation "International". It appears to be a European produced model for the European market and may not have a corresponding US market designation.

Interesting watch Denis, I wish we had some indication of what his name is. In past many of the watches we've tagged as 'International' had either the stylized Goddess of Time  on the case back or the word International on the dial. Not having either moves me away from that designation. Short of a new advert I'm going with Unknown. I rather like the watch, it's different.

I was thinking european also,for $2.25USD I took a chance on it as I liked the look of it.Oh,for that price it also came with a 1954 Senator.Thanks to Andersok for the crystal number.
