Additional Information: 

I inherited this watch and would like to know more about it.  There is no indication on the exterior of any maker;  only on the works inside the case did I find "Bulova W. Co   3 adj  15 jewels  SWISS" clearly visible (at the bottom, slightly to the right, in the open case picture). Also, on the works, is engraved "FAVREW Co."  (at the top, slightly to the left, in the same picture).   I found no date code symbol anywhere, so the date of 1924 I entered is pure conjecture.   Can anyone help me?

I would say we stick with the "Precision" name on the watches with it on the dial (2 in db).

Subject is possibly earlier than stated date, by just a year or possibly two, going by data available so far. That would put it around the Rubaiyat advertised dates. It could still be one from 1921, we just can't be clear about anything yet, we're still groping in the dark. Without records and only some dingy old newspaper ads to go on, and a couple of articles here and there, tealeaves and crystal balls are nearly as much help!

I would say subject is a Ruby, we see many examples of Bulova ladies' watches from this time and slightly earlier with blank dials.
