Hmmmm, Please be aware that newspaper ads are plagued by mistakes. The Few ads above identified Bulova “Sports” clearly indicates the brand “Fontain” in the dial, so definitively is not a valid identification. Cross checks are needed!u

We are aware... there are many many watches that are mistakenly identified in ads in the thousands of newspaper ads I look at.

1926 The smallest watch in the world as presented to Queen Marie of Rumania and awarded to Miss America beauty contest of 1926.

The watch was so small (size of a penny) that to wind it, you rotated the entire back case which was directly connected to the mainspring. The hairspring is said to have been one third the thickness of a normal spring.

1926 Bulova smallest watch in the world.

...and the watch in question which was valued at $1000 (equivalent to $14,200 today)

1926 Bulova Smallest watch in the world worn by Irene Bordoni
