Like has been put forward in other threads concerning these types, they are possibly re-use of good movements by Bulova in a time of austerity, possibly after buying them back from the government.

Another idea is yours Mark, that they came from the Bulova School of Watchmaking, and is a favourite of mine.

Whichever or whatever, these Unknowns are not random as Mark says, as there are too many of them.

Love this watch, that case is great!
