Ahh yes, my hero Wile E Coyote purchased a lot of different things from Acme through the years.
Many years ago I bought a watch from a watchmakers estate, a Bulova. Pretty watch that I just put into a case and more or less forgot about it. Well yesterday i took it out and I was surprised to learn that it has the first model Bulova movement that was marked with a model number. It's marked AAI which from what I can tell was made in 1921 & 22. The case is marked Acme Watch Case Company.. Here is an advertisement that I found.

Watch is in great shape and runs great. Obviously since it is so well cared for it meant something to the watchmaker that owned it. The dial is marked Bulova by the way. I know little to nothing about Bulova watches except I love the Accutrons. I am jut trying to figure out if the case is original to the watch.
