Sorry...I didn't realize that there were three pages of comments when I suggested Priscilla...you are right Arlene looks much closer.

Rosieartist, could the APU/APJ be ADJ?

Yes, I took more photos maybe they can show it better.  Maybe I should 3 mail them because of the size restrictions on the site.  Thanks

Thanks to all, I got close up zoom views that show more but reduced the resolution, I can e mail those with better dpi.    I still till can't see a symbol for model.

...and DarHin was correct on the marking "Two 2 ADJ." ,  being the hallmark for two times adjusted movement.  Now if we could just nail down a reasonable date for the movemet production. 
Thanks for adding more pictures.

Dr Ranfft has no record for the 6P movement.  Our database has a start date of 1924 and end date of 1925 with 15, 16 and 17 jewel examples, however that doesn't mean your movement production date isn't outside that date range.   See http://www.mybulova.com/node/2384

I have seen references from eBay sellers for examples of 6P movements dated to 1926 or 1927, but don't remember seeing actual pictures of movements with date symbols for anything past 1925.

Rosieartist, can you check with the loop and see if this could be a circle? If not a circle is it another date code shape? Thanks

There is no mark there, all shiny and smooth under the loop.
