Additional Information: 

I am sorry I don't have more information.  This was my father's watch, and my wife now wears it to remember him.  It is currently not working, and we need to explore either having it fixed or replacing it.  I thought the first step is to identify the watch in more detail.  I appreciate any information you can provide.  I put down the date of 1946, but I am just guessing.

Thank you.

Inside case back:BULOVA,14K GOLD FILLED,NEW YORK

Dial:Gold applied numbersand indices and reads BULOVA.By the notch at the 6 oclock position this seems to be an older redial.Missing the hands(I can't remember if they came with the watch or not)

Case is also rose gold coloured and came with this Speidel band marked 1/20 10k gold filled that almost looks copper coloured.

When I got this watch it came with the box shown and the guarantee papers showing that it was sold at DeVons jewellers on "K" street in Sacramento CA in December 1947.

Crown does not seem to be original(unsigned)

Case shape:

Gender:

Additional Information: 

Case measures 38.5mm lug to lug x 26mm wide non inclusive of the Crown while using Calipers.

Original Dial shows a combination of raised Gilt Arabic numerals and Hashmark Hour markers. Bulova logo and tracks are printed Black.

Hour and Minute Hands are Index style and an Index style Seconds Hand appears on a sub Dial totally obscuring the 6.

I would disagree this Watch is the 'DELEGATE'

1. Hour and Minute Hands are Index  style.

2. Caseback is Gold.

3. Case is longer than the 'DELEGATE' shown in the ad.

4. Case Horizontal detail differs from the Watch shown in the ad.

These details do not match the image nor the descriptive text wthin the only known advertisement at this time.

 

* 4/6/2012 newly discovered display ad Dated 1957 .
