Additional Information

Believed to be a 1935 President with "Wandering Seconds." 

Case is marked 10K gold filled, signed Bulova 4x: dial, case back outside/inside, movement.

Case measurement: 29.80mm x 25.5mm, lug width: 13.11mm; lug to lug: 37.35mm; unsigned crown:  5.89mm; all measurements with digital caliper.

Case was free of "brassing" (any indication in photos resulted from reflections). There is one very small area of "wear through" on a case back corner.

The attached Hadley bracelet did not appear to match adverts sourced. The bracelet is apparently period correct and was marked: "Patent No. 1966063," patent issued July 10, 1934 (ref available).

The history of this example is unknown. Upon receipt the watch appeared to work properly and has since been professionally serviced.

I picked this unusual lug Bulova 23 Jewel watch today.  It is an M3 but the movement is M1.  It has short lugs on the top and a different lug on the bottom.   It has a gold concentric circle dial.  I thought maybe a Regatta but can't find a match.

Wow... I have never seen one of these President's in a two tone before.  I gasped when Is saw it at auction.  It needs a good bath but what a stunner!

Original two tone bracelet is intact and in resonably good shape.  This is about as rare as they come.

The dust cover was intact on this, and it sure did a number on the movement.  Though its sporting a 21 Jewel 9AF.  Which we know were producted from 29-31.  Hrmmm... the ads we have show a 17 Jewel movement.I took a dozen pictures of all angles and blew them all up and I can not find a date stamp on this movement. 

 

Beautiful watch...

Pretty minty President "A". This one is a classic "sock drawer watch" purchased a few years ago at an estate sale. Shows very little evidence of wear, mostly on the very tips of the high points of band. Accurate time keeper and one of my favorites.

I think this is a president.  The movement is dated 1933 and the case (inside back), 1932.  I'm a bit confused,as there is a 6 digit number on the outside of the case back. I don't know where that fits in.
