Additional Information: 

Movement has asterisk as well as what looks like a circle - so could be 24 or 25 vintage ??? or later ??

The 6N - 16 jewel movement is not in the database so this is a new one for movement  DB.   

Case is 16.5mm X 26.75mm.  Lug end to lug end is 29mm White gold filled ?kt.  Writing in case is very feint.

Band looks to be original with 32 faceted sapphires roll set.  Do not know if these are real or simulated.

Edit:   The closest picture that I can find in the DB is "The NORMA"  1924 image 11 of 36, but this has a 15 jewel movement.    

Edit 2:  6N movement now added to the movement data base.        These models are also close, but I do not think they are right -  6720??, 7805??, 6722??

I'm happy with a tentative Bulova Norma and believe it was finally assembled in 1926.

I'm good w/ Norma.  

Bulova Quality verbiage for fill content, so this could give us the apx date of case manufacture.  I don't remember when they changed the "rules" for how gold content was hallmarked.  When "rules" for gold content hallmark changed we have latest possible case manufacture date.  The watch could have been "finished off" a while after this rule change.

Are we dating case based on second digit of case SN being a 6?
