Actually, I have no idea what the date of maufacture is. I am hoping someone else might recognize it.

I will be taking it in to a specialist in a couple of weeks,but I just found this website today,so I decided to see if anyone else knew of it. It was my grandfathers watch and he died in 1956, so I am figuring it dates from some point after his time in  WW1 to 1955, but probably between the late 20s to 40s.

Who knows,certainly not me!

Welcome aboard! I have never seen a picture of what I think your watch may be. On site we have vintage watch ads. I have cropped what I think your watch may be out of a 1929 ad 3. The watch never appears again in any ad we have on-site. Having never seen a pic of the real watch before, I would guess it is a wee bit of rare.  Any opinions out there, comments please!!!!!

Seems close, but the engraving seems to be the opposite.

The watch is ceratinly late 1920s. 

Bennie, when you the case cn you se if you can get a good photo of both the movement and inside back case.

Hi,I know they are not really good pics; say thank you built in Toshiba web cam! I will try to get a better pic this week. I don't know if the wrist band is the original, I do know it has an  imprint of Speidel on every link.But I really am afraid to try to get it open myself and will have to wait to get it to the repair guy.(and I do mean someone  who deals with antique watches in NYC).amy

The engraving is ceryainly not the same. Good eye on that.

I can't say I have ever seen one in our data base but it sure interesting.

With information provided, remains unknown IMO
Has anyone seen a similar case design which is Bulova?  It's unknow if case is even Bulova-made/contracted.
