Additional Information: 

This watch has virtually no wear and appears to be completely original. White 14 k RGP case dated Jan 11, 1927. Hand - I - Fold deployment type bracelet appears original to watch. Dial and hands are unrestored. Original crown. Winds and sets perfectly and runs within minutes a day. Box is not an original Bulova but appears correct to the period. A fabulous time capsule from 1929. If this watch was ever worn regularly.....it has been decades since it was.

For all of you that comb through all those listings every day......TAKE HEART....I bought this beauty last week, just as you see it, for less than $60!! Find of the YEAR!!!

We discussed the differences btwn Surrey and Senator in this time period in another thread/record.  I just don't remember/can't find which one now. Discussed number of flowers in mid-bezel if I remember.   Looks like the Surrey to me.
