Additional Information: 

Very possibly a Bulova frankenwatch (see movement).

Case Model: Trident, or Alden, or Chancellor. I think Chancellor. 1938 according to case serial number.

Movement 1937 according to the arrow symbol. Movement should apparently be 10AN, but the bridge (at least) is 10AE. It's 17J.

At the edge of the mainplate under the balance wheel it has the number 41 engraved in a trapezium.

Can't find a movement serial, but I've so far only removed the balance.

Also engraved in the case back:

21461H or possibly 214GIH

F32285 (quite scratchy)

Gold plated, worn off at the corners. In the photo's (sellers photos) it looks a bit like rose gold, but definitely yellow in real life.

Balance pivot broken, in the process of replacing balance staff.

I don't like the tinted crystal much, might replace with clear.

Bulova 1937 Chancellor

Model ID rating explained.
Manufacture Year: 
1937
Movement Model: 
15J
Additional Information: 

 

The BULOVA "CHANCELLOR," Circa 1937. 15 Jewels... Original price $24.75.

VERY similar to both the 1936 "ALDEN." (Also sports a 15J movement!)

AND the 1933 "TRIDENT." (Stephen just denoted was the '33 "Unknown.")

ALL THREE likely take the same case and glass, I believe... And all three are 15Js!!!
