Here is a easy one...1938 Bulova President with a 7AP 21J movement stamped with a Crescent moon. The 10K Gold filled bezel & back are near perfect, just some scratches to the bezel that I need to work out... usually the back is worn through on the edges and the lug ends are shot on these, the bracelet is a JB 12K Gold filled adjustable type and is also near perfect. Has both the inner & outer boxes and paperwork and I would say that the whole package is original

I bought this watch last weekend on the bay, and thought it was a worn out Phantom due to the sellers poor pictures, I was quite surprised when it arrived!

The subject watch had a disk with hour markers and not numbers like the advert. At this stage we do not have an exact match, which us shy at this stage I'm voting tentative President.

Your right, I thought I snipped the right ad, I know we have one here that has both the stick markers and a sub-seconds dial...now to find it.

I watched this one go by, hoping one of us snagged it, well bought Greg.

I say it's a Pres and note that the ad Jerin posted states it is available in numeral OR stick dial........interesting note.
