This Bulova model remains unnamed, but the date stamp on the movement dates it to 1931. The model is documented in period advertisements, but unfortunately without a name to go with it. This example is in Very Good to Excellent condition and is all original excepting only the band. We’ve had this watch cleaned, oiled and adjusted and it is running well and keeping good time.
The watch features a distinctive two tone bezel, with the white gold plate engraved and the yellow gold plate unadorned. The engraving is crisp and not worn down, and the case back similarly shows little sign of use. Neither the bezel nor the back show brassing or wear through. This is a double hinged case.
The dial is all original with a mild patina appropriate for its age. The hands are also unrestored, with the original lume paint still in place. This watch features cathedral hands and a distinctive seconds track. The domed crystal is in Very Good condition with no chips or serious scratches.
The watch is powered by Bulova’s mode 10AN movement. A 15 jewel movement with 4 adjustments. It was cleaned, oiled, and adjusted in June 2013. The original celluloid dust shield is still in place protecting the movement.
We’ve added to this watch a very nice new Hadley-Roma lizard and leather band with a gold toned clasp. This is a larger watch and is probably more suitable for use by a man.
