I have this logged as a FARRAGUT model dating to 1935 as per the serial numbers but under one of the other listed Farragut models there appears to be some doubt as to its name.

The yellow 10k Rolled Gold Plate CASE measures 19.5mm excluding the crown and 39.74mm lug tip to tip, it is unsigned but has the typical Bulova stamped 10k Rolled Gold Plate on the outside of the case back.

The Bulova signed MOVEMENT is a calibre 6ab of 7 jewels stamped with the date code symbol for 1935, I think this is where it differs from the advert in its jewel count.??

The watch still runs perfectly on time.  The wrist band appears to be the original with black leather inserts on the first 9 links on both sides and stamped Japan Pat. #2515817.  Per several ads I found, the watch is yellow rolled gold plate with a stainless steel back  Model 113Y Neptune.  L3 and serial number 5733993 are stamped on the back. Is there anyway to determine where this watch was purchased by the serial number.  I am trying to find out if my Father purchased this watch or possibly was given to him as a gift by Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co.

Per two certified jewelers I visited today, April 21st,  the face is brass and speckled effect is rust.  The crystal is acrylic round dome and suggested having it buffed and polished rather than replaced. Replacement may not even be available and could be costly. Both hesitant  to remove back to check for other numbers and believed the back appeared to have never been opened.  Employees at both stores said they wouldn't clean it if the watch was theirs.  All liked the unique style, antique look of the gold plating and the speckled effect on the face. Was told it is in very good condition for being 60 years old, very rare and valuable.

Found pictures of my Father wearing this watch from the '50's and 60's with the gold band as shown in the ads.  But pictures from beginning the early 70's with the band as shown in the pictures I have posted.  Have determined this was a farewell gift from the Goodyear Tire Store employees in Canton, Oh when he was transferred back to Cleveland, Oh. When my Father passed away in 1994, my brother got this watch and was given to me when he recently passed away. This watch has traveled to several cities in Ohio, Jackson, MI, Chicago, IL, Newport Richey, FL, Winston-Salem, NC, Union City, TN and now back in Chicago, Il.  Someday it will belong to one of my 5 grandson  to further add history and travels.

Plainsman has one so I had to have one too...in fact he sent me the link to it...Thanks Jerin!

I was expecting a 7J 6 AE movement in this one, but much to my suprise it has a 17J 6 AF power plant. The dial is near mint and other than one small wear-thru spot on one corner of the back cover, it is in excellent shape and running great.

The dial is White with Gold applied numbers & Art Deco scrolling along the top & bottom of the dial. The case measures 19.7mm wide, 39.8mm lug to lug, and 12mm between lugs. It is 10K RGP and is stamped Bulova with the A.S. shield between the lugs. The band looks period, it is 10K Gold filled made by Jay-Kel,  and is in super shape.

I know Jerin & Lisa both have one of these that are 1937's and 7J 6 AE movements, and I seem to remember Mark also having one, but couldn't find it in the data base. It is dated with the movement, because if we go by the case serial number, it would indicate 1931 or 41, so case serials may not apply to all of these older A.S. cased Bully's.

Unknown for now unless somebody has a name for it.

This one had eluded me for the last several months.  I've finally gotten an example of this model.  I love the deco style lines on the dial!!  I believe this watch was the only men's Bulova that has something like this.

I've only seen a small handful (3) other examples of this model and I believe Nova has one.

I love this watch and it's definately going to be a keeper as I believe it to  be one of the rarest of this era other than possibly the Knight.

It's still unknown as of yet and I've not seen anything else like it in any of the known ads.  HEY... there's still a little mystery left out here ladies and gents!
