Another beautiful pocket watch.... This one is almost perfect with little to no wear.  Look at the back of this... there are some scratches yes, but the vertical machining is still present.

Double date stamp of Crescent and hand stamped Shield puts this at 1929 probably.

I think this one is a 470 series.

I know I've seen an ad for these with a Bulova movement.  I can't find it right now, but it was one of these really early ones that I think advertised other brands along with Bulova to fit in this case.

Really neat piece... octogonal, 17 Jewels.  I don't know what the big "M" stands for on the movement.  Could that be an early attempt at a movement model number?

If you look at the left side of the picture of the case back you'll see it got one of it's corners cut/bent.  It doesn't look like it's "filled", but more solid.  See what you think....

What do you think panel?

Case shape:

Case Manufacturer:

Additional Information: 

Beautiful tricolored black-white-gray explosion dial'ed pocket watch.  This one is really unusual from what I've seen as the case seems to be manufactured to have the bail on the bottom of the watch and the crown inset into the top.  So when you pull it out of your pocket it's immediately readable without having to turn it around.  I sorta dig it!

It needs a good cleaning, and the case back is a bit dinged up, but this one is a keeper for me for sure.

Double date stamped movement, Crescent and Shield, I'm going with the 1939, although the serial starts with an 8 indicating 1938.

I scrolled right on by this guy the other day without more than a passing glance.  About ten watches later in the auctions I saw this exact same model/dial combo reading solid gold!  I scrolled back and low and behold in a blurry picture you could just make out 14K SOLID GOLD under the Bulova.

I clicked the BIN as fast as I could!  Haha....

Case is 41mm in diameter, the overall weight of the watch is 41 grams.

Bulova Pocket Watch.  I don't know the roman numeral dial, and I think the only ad's we have from this era for a pocket would be the Buckingham?

Hello! I got this watch from my grandfather by his lifetime and as I was much younger that time we didn't talk about where he got it from or anything else.

Now I hope you can help me to date the watch, because also with the guide I'm not able to do it.

Case (Inside): BULOVA W.Co, 18K, 1829, (and something engraved like A.T.1973, but this is engraved by hand)

Movement: 2809, BULOVA WATCH Co, SEVENTEEN 17 JEWELS, 17P, (Swiss is writen very little on it), 2 TWO ADJ

Waiting for your Answers...

Thank you,

Mike

Hey all again. After finding the last one, I had to buy the brother of another mother. Now I have the white and black dial. Hopefully, a definitive answer will come soon as to the watch name, etc.  in any case, this one is ticking away and is keeping great time.
