From what I have gathered, this is a 1955 Ardsley... though I am not 100% sure of the model or style. I have not opened it to verify any jewels, movement or other details as I am new to this and refrain from possibly damaging the mechanics. I am looking for input as to the value of this piece for inssurance reasons.
This Bulova rectangular wristwatch was manufactured in 1956. The watch was completely overhauled. The 17 jewels manual wind movement was cleaned and oiled. The pearl color dial, with raised numerical and round hour markers was professionally restored. The rolled gold plated fancy case was also restored. It measures 26mm long (not including the lugs) by 23mm wide at its narrowest point (not including the crown). A new two facet optical glass was installed.
Unknown 1931 Lady Bulova. She sports nice little green emeralds in the bezel. I'm thinking this must have been one of the last ladies watches to be decked out in the colored stones as everything starts to go to a solid case after her.
