I picked this up from a seller who inherited it from her grandmother.  She said that she didn't think her grandmother was the original owner because the initials on the back aren't hers.

Signed "Bulova Quality Filled" case back.

My preliminary diagnosis is a 153 per previous discusisons as it is gold filled.  But these watches are interesting.  The engraving on the bezel seems to be stereo typical but the watch faces are like snow flakes.  All the ones in the database are different.  The subject watch face looks the most like this one but that watch the filigree around the edges of the dial.

The font on the dial and the blue hands seem to be common to all of the watches.

The other watches all have 10A movements and this one has a 10AA.  But the 16 jewel count is correct as is the date range for the 10AA movement.

Rather large ladies for 1931 I think.  Probably the most etched/scrolled case I've seen for a Bulova ladies watch.

The dial is really cool with metallic designs.  Sapphire type crown.  I'm assuming 14k plate but I don't know.

A pretty wild 16 Jewel, 10 A movement.

I don't know this watch and will look in the ads but it's pretty usual.

The hands are of a blued type of metal. Lapis or sapphire in the winding stem. Engraved on the  front and back. The face where the hands sit has stripes. It has the original band. It looks like the 1922 158 however that watch does not advertise with a metal/gold band.Rumor has it that this watch was a wedding gift to my great grandmother. Their first child was born in 1902. That would place this watch at 1902 or prior if the story holds true.

10A 16 jewels  2 adj ; case 18 KGF ; running strong
EDIT:  Updated root record w/ info from Syfre: 

side the case :
American standard
25 years
19 K gold filled  (yes 19 ! )
1404587

there is also a "coat of arms" (i used google translate for that because i don't know the english word, it's "blason" in french). I don't think this is a bulova case.

The movement is a very nice bulova 10A 16j ; serial number  115595
there is also a symbol for the date code (probably how i dated it)
The dial is a metal dial with bulova on it.
