Looks similar to 1925/26 Princine, 1926 Ramona, and 1927 Suzanne, but case shape is a little different. I have it running now, but misplaced the crystal. Band is Gold Filled with blue stones. Case is solid 14K White Gold. Movement has the blus stone winding crown. Any ideas as to Year and Name ?? Original dial, just cleaned.

I just noticed the 14k solid gold case serial number has eight digits.  
I'm voting 1924 Beverly.  Maybe it was not called this in 1924, but it's the closest we have w/ that 1925 Beverly ad.  If/when we find it has a different model name (or number) in 1924, we can update then.

The inside case back photo may only have seven digit serial number.  OP lists case SN as 14973434  however I don't see the last "4" in picture.  Look at how the seven easily visible digits are centered compared to "Bulova Quality" signature above the numbers.  If it were centered for eight digits, the numbers would be a little further to the right?

I agree, Will, looks like seven digits to me also. The service marks are what are confusing the issue.
