I may enamel this bezel John, question being what Colour(s) as the unusual engaving patterns are very similar to the LIDO line of Ladies Watches or would Black be correct?

Vintage database ad Dated 1928  http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/Bulova_AD_1928_A...

...need an ad.

I think it would depend on the colo(u)r of your eyes. Or perhaps your arm hair.

Certainly looks closest to Lady Lindy in that ad, but not a match.  Sure looks like one of the Lido Series.  Fifth- for enamel colors, the ad states "Ruby and Jade" inlay, and black is a given.  The problem is seeing where it's "Jade" vs black, as those two colors look the same in the ad. 

Unknown.

As you have two of these in the DB and neither show any traces of enamel, and subject watch seems to be in exceptional condition, perhaps they never were enamelled in the first place.
Having said that, they would certainly look great enamelled.

1929 ad. Almost useless ad, but at least it shows it's not enamelled.
