I'll go with the FF for double the fun!

Sweet! Well, we previously christened your white gold example as "FF", so logic would call this one "GG" if a variant is assigned.

1951 AA "GG"

You are almost there :o)

Hang on, how did we arrive at GG? Is there an advert?

You are correct, there is not an ad for the "GG".  I wasn't suggesting we ID this as "GG" just that it is my opinion it is either the "FF" or the "GG".  My personal gut feeling is that Bulova most likely advertised the yellow gold version which would be the "FF".  If we went with that assumption now that we have a yellow example we would ID this as the "FF" and move the two white models to the generic Academy Award section.  Just my thoughts on it : ) Or visa versa and leave the white models as "FF" and move this to a generic AA.

Based on this Bulova Academy Award "FF" watch entry I say we ID this as the Academy Award "GG", at least until we prove they are the other way around.

The are 100% "FF" and "GG" we just need to confirm which is which.

I agree also, just didn't think we would without an ad but I think there is enough evidence with the pricelist to do so.
