Additional Information: 

Picked this one out of a flea market junk box about 3 hrs prior to posting. Needs to be serviced, balance appears good. Interesting hinged case with wire lugs and engraved face. No exterior case markings but marked with S/N and "Bulova Quality" on inside. Replacement band is a Kestenmade. Jewel on crown has the tip broken off. I am pretty sure this is a 1931 Rona. Based on the 2 ads I reference (both dated 1931), there appears to have been more than one variation of Rona in 1931. The "slave bracelet" version 42019F had interesting band ends that matched the case, the "tubular band" model is  pretty much a dead match to subject watch. If this is indeed a 1931 Rona, it's a first for this model variant in the database.

Hi all

I would like the assistance of other members in helping to establish the identity of this nice ladies Bulova watch. Looking through the ads I think it may be a 1929 Rona.  The case is in white gold fill  and is marked Bulova Quality pat. June 10 1924. and the serial number 0217730 . I am presuming it is 14k gold filled as there is no markings to indicate if it is or not. the case is engraved on the front side and rear of case and has the initials JCB engraved on the back. It is a hinged case with a matching bracelet. The movement is a 15jewel ,4 adjusted  6AF and has the shield mark and serial number 160855. Bulova watch Co.  The crown has a blue sapphire . The watch still has the dust cover over the movement. there is no sign of wear on the case .

The watch is still working but certainly could do with a service.

I still can't seem to upload the ads pages . can anyone help please

The closest picture I can see is for the 1930 "Rona"   18 of 36 top left of picture.   Although my watch has a sapphire in the crown and the picture does not - may have had an older stem and crown fitted???

Don't know - will leave this up to you guys and gals.

Edit:   1927 advertisment shows "Rona" with the Sapphire in the crown.
