Additional Information: 

A most unusual Bulova and certainly a new, albeit an Unknown model. Stepped lugs are engraved in a heretofore unknown pattern and cover the bracelet spring bars. Case has Jan 11, 1927 Patent Date and is marked 14 k GF. This is, as far as I can find the oldest Bulova we have with what some call the 'dress' dial having applied numerals and Bulova name. Case side engraving matches my other "Step Lug" Bulova. Dial refinished by International.

the Case side engraving is unlike any found on a known Bulova of era, add the hinge issue and the possibility exists that the bezel has been swapped.
