NOTES:  This watch has been tenatively identified by its crystal specifications and a matching G-S crystal packet, which identifies this model as the "21st Century".  Thank you, Shawn Bourget (eBay seller Bourg01) for alerting me to this information and providing an image of the crystal packet (below).   I was also able to find this model listed in a 1954 Bulova price list.  In 1954, the "21st Century" sold for $65.00.
