Here is another nice little ladies watch in white 10k Rolled Gold Plate. 

I believe it may be a 1957 example of "The Godess of Time E "  but I will leave that to the diliberations of the panel.

It is a 10K white Rolled Gold case with diamonds at the top and bottom of the bezel . The movement is a 17 jewel 6BD. and is marked L7. and is running strong. The case is also marked L7 on the outside and has the serial number  C490574. The band and case are in perfect condition. The dial and crystal are also in near perfect condition.

The marks on the back of the case are not rust but seem tobe some sort of glue. maybe from a sticker of sorts need to use a solvent to remove them .

Additional Information: 

This is believed to be a 1945 Goddess of Time "K".

It was purchased originally from Louis J. Shapiro Jewelers in Chicago on December 15th, 1945.  The price of the watch, not including tax, was $33.75.

I acquired it with the original outer box, display box (whose owner was right handed due to the slight wear spot on the velvet covered lid), guarantee paper, payment terms, and bill of sale.  Both the bill of sale and the guarantee have the case back serial no. that matches this watch.

There are the roman numerals VII III II on the inside of the case outer which match the last three digits of the case serial number F382732.

When received, it had a black rope band with a Bretton clasp of which I do not know was original, but had the same amount of tarnish as the outer case.

The dial is original and does not show any wear or corrosion

It has a 6AH movement which was cleaned, oiled, and had a new mainspring installed.  The movement has a triangle symbol stamped on the set bridge.

Hello to all who see this watch,

  This watch is 10K Rolled Gold. I'm not exactly sure of the manufactured year but following the instructions on how to date your watch, this is the corresponding year that correlates the markings. I have not been able to find the name of this watch, so if you have any information that can help me or can lead me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you 

 

P.S. Also, the inside of the case has the name BULOVA on the inside in case it is not a clear enough picture.

Additional Information: 

Crescent moon is 1938, but case serial would be 1937? 

This watch came in a very vintage Martha Washington box, and has lived there for many years, however I do believe what we have here is a round dial Goddess of Time. 

The hands are not original, should be stick hands. 

I have included the pic of the box just for the sake of a record.
