I have this case design listed as a Templan. Check 1928-29-30 ads to verify. Then change the name to Templan.

 

Thanks

Wayne

Not a  'TEMPLAN'.

'TEMPLAN' is 15 Jewels not 17, the Case Vertical details differ greatly, as do the Hands and the Dial.

Totally different case from the Templan. Subject has a convex (4 curved sides and length longer than width) crystal. Templan has tonneau shaped crystal.

Is that a double stamped date code on the movement? Omega over shield? Need a case serial # and pics to nail down the date.

Looks the same as these two. http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1931-unknown-4900 http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1931-unknown-2479

But with a correct minutes track.

One ad could help ID all three of these.  Good job cross-referencing other similar watches.

Yes, Bob. My earliest catalog, post 1930, is a GS '37 (courtesy of John, JP) but it only list's the matching Y850 crystal as fitting a Bulova but no model specified. I've been on the hunt for earlier catalogs but no luck yet.

Wonder if this is a Bulova case?  No notes to confirm in thread, and no picture to suggest (or suggest otherwise).
