Watch Description

This is one I had never seen before. That's why I was attracted to it. It has a 10k RGP bezel and a stainless back. I figure it must be a nurse's model, maybe. Can you guys tell me anything about it?

This is, or was, the Medical Centre in 1942/43 ads. Maybe had a movement change, but we can't date this by the case sn.

Nice watch you got there!

Well done, sometimes these adverts look us straight in the face, before we make a match.

Nice match for a Bulova Medical Centre

Nice ad Bobbee. Thank you. I think 1948 was the only year the 6BKC movement was made and "H" in the case serial number is the 8th letter in the alphabet. But that could be irrelevent.

Thanks guys for ID'ing this one. I didn't see the 6BKC movement in the data base. Does anyone want to add it? I don't know how.
