Yep, I had to put mine on the back burner as I'm still trying to shuffel through a "Lot" of 45 (all ladies) Bulovas I recently picked up for (sush, don't tell anyone) $120.00  :-O  $2.66 apiece and nothing after 1952. Even better, is that more than half run and most have the orig. bands. Talk about falling into a pile of sh*t and come out smelling like a Rose...........

Any chance you have something in a band that goes well with my Miss America? Original would be nice, but need something that matches...www.mybulova.com/watches/1930-miss-america-1926

 

I love those early white gold watches, any that y'all dont like, let me know...

Yes, I'm beginning to like the elaborate artistry of their design and the technology of the time to make the movements so small, the 4 series movements are crazy small.

What are you using to establish that this watch is from 1921?  The case serial number that is just a theory/speculation at this point?

My experience shows that serial numbers were used only on movements from 1923. Does anyone else have the same or a different opinion or experience?
