Additional Information

Another nice "Bulova 30" dated "M0" and marked 10K GF Bezel/ stainless back. Mounted on a NOS 1960's  scissor center GP SS band. This is a front load and I haven't had it apart. The other one in my stable has a 10COAC and I would assume this one is the same. Keeps perfect time. Has a little bit of lume "halo" staining around the dots at number indice markers.

According to the 1960 ad referenced, it's Champagne bubble-proof.

This is a a nice watch, I do agree that it's a Bulova 30 but I'm more of a scotch / whiskey drinker. (Neat please)

I agree with Bulova 30. I was unable to pin down a variant.

Agreed, I'm finding a lot of Commander 30 jewel models from 1965 onwards, which I suspect the Bulova 30 became, as well as the 30J Date King and 30J President models. 

This will be one of the orginal Bulova 30s
