Hi all

I think this lades watch may be a 1938 Lady Bulova

The case is 10k gold filled and has the word Bulova followed by what looks like a shield on its side the case serial number is 8599139. the inside is marked Bulova fifth ave, New York.. The 17Jewel 6AZ movement is marked with a crescent moon symbol. . the watch has a Speidel expandable gold plated bracelet.

Both the case and bracelet are in very good condition, but unfortuataly the movement is not working, but I think all it needs is a good service.

Looks to be in fine condition, and I'd say this is a match to the Lady Bulova 'F'

1939 example with several supporting ads

That's a very nice 1938 Lady Bulova "F" George. 77 years old and still as beautiful as ever.

A replacement movement should be easy enough to source if this one is beyond repair. Its a great little ladies watch and agree with the Lady Bulova 'F'. model name.
