The BULOVA "KNIGHT," Circa 1938. This has to be one of the RAREST Art Deco Bulova timepieces, from the 1920s to 1940. Noone seems to have even seen this model before??? And ironically, identifyng the crystal was, for once, rather straightforward... since no other 30s/40s Bully is specified in any of the many watch crystal catalogs I have, as taking the same crystal.
The bezel window is also VERY unique... as it takes a curved vs. flat around the edge, crystal. Only two Bulova models even use a similar style, with curved glass, or in this size range... This was a befitting "knighting," for a crowned price of the of an era, known as "Art Deco..." (Broadsword hands, and all...)
I have several 1938 and 39 vintage ads, and none even illustrate this rare model... The movement and case date production to 1938. so this may well be the only year this handsome design was even produced, since the vast majority of the "Steamline Art Deco" cases were only made through 1939, which was the officially the END of the famous Art Deco Period...
