Additional Information

I believe this to be a 1927 Bulova Orchid.  I found a watch that looked like it in the old advertisements on this website (12/27/1927 Saturday Evening Post).  I can't tell what the movement symbol is to get a correct date.  If I had a loupe, maybe.  I'm probably going to end up selling this on eBay (I bought it at an auction) and just wanted more information on it.  Thank you!

(edit:  I was able to get my hands on a loupe to check out the date symbol and it looks like a shield to me.  Updated the date on the post.)
