Greetings all, I'm a new Bulova owner and discovered this site when trying to decide whether to bid on a beat up old pocket watch with a cracked crystal. Or maybe I got here after I took a modest flier and was trying to figure out what exactly I'd won. It was late. Long story short (probably too late for that) I am the proud owner of a lady Rockland. I've posted a couple of pictures showing up as a New Watch 1922 unknown. It's not really unknown. It says Rockland right on the front. The date of manufacture is the unknown. I guessed '22.
I didn't find any pictures of Rocklands here, so I posted a couple from the auction. I'm awaiting shipment and will post more. The form wouldn't let me post without a movement serial number, so I just put in a placeholder, which is certainly wrong. I spent hours after the auction with my friend Google trying to find out more. I spotted a picture of a Bulova with the same distinctive bow and when I clicked on it, it brought me back here to a page on a 1921 Lady Maxim. They look strikingly similar to my untrained eye.
It's purportedly running. Knock on wood. Anyway, there seems to be a shortage of photos of the Rockland model, so I though I'd share what I have. It's not marked Lady Rockland, so I'm curious whether there are men's Rocklands as well. Apparently I'll be researching replacement of vintage petite pocket watch crystals, so any advice along those lines is very welcome.
