Hello...I am sorry for the aweful pics(I will have to ask my son to take better ones for me)...I was curious about this watch, searching the web and came across this site. I think I found a " 1927 Lone Eagle" but I am not sure. 

The pics I have seen look like this watch...The case has "Bulova Quality 14k American Standard Pat Jun 10 1924 7669320" and the works has the following: Bulova 10AN seventeen 17 Jewels Swiss Unadjusted.

Any information you can help with would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi!

It would help if you could take some clearer pics of the bezel and the roman numerals please.

I am having trouble uploading photos...after looking at the inside of the bezel with a magnifying glass... on the side where the crown fits...with the crystal up, there is three  III then two II continuing through where the crown is cut out and then to the right a upside down v.

If the roman numerals are correct, it has been seen on another movement that an upside down V means "0".
The marks match the case back sn's last three digits, 320.

Strange place to have those marks, usually on the central movement holder.

Got any pics of the bezel that shows it's got no case yellowing?

The only area that is not white is under where the enamel is lost, if it was up to me this would be a gold filled case...I would rather it be a lone eagle but its not. The area in the corners where there is lose to the enamel, the yellow/ is only on the low points and i think its an adhesive or discoloration from being enameled there.

Well there you have it, the bezel is original to the case back that makes this entire watch a 14k Conqueror. There is no cause for concern about the yellowing under the enamel in my opinion. It's a non issue as I believe the yellowing that we are seeing is simply some sort of residue from where the enamel was adhered/baked onto the case. I've seen this before on other Conquerors/LEs.

Much better pics, Schaeffer. Thanks for your hard work getting them, and the front of the case matches the back, with those scratched in roman numerals, like this one.

VIIII=9, VIII=8, upside-downV=0= 980.

Anyone else got the roman numerals inside the case front like above?

 

Schaeffer, does your movement have an arrow-like mark on it anywhere? we cannot see one in the photos. We see the triangle date mark, and the arrow is usually near the movement serial number, or near the two big "cogs".
