American Standard



Additional Information

This is apparently a Ladies pocked watch that was converted to be worn as a wrist watch.  No date symbols on the movement and the only serial number is on the case.  Currently runs and stops so needs a good cleaning.

Case is 25.78mm dia.  8.16mm thick

Crystal is 19.71mm

With the 20 year warranty on the case I am assuming that it is 10k gold filled

20 YEARS indicated gold fil or Rolled Gold Plate Warranty, as to the time guarantee before base metal would not show through the plating. Before 1924 GF or RGP cases were marked as to quality & thickness with either 5-10-15-20-25-30 year warranty . After 1924 cases are not guaranteed but are marked with the 10-14-etc as quality marks of the GF or RGP, as they are today. The American Standard Globe Symbol does not appear in my reference book.

It probably more 1919 or there abouts.

Good to know.  This is a beautiful example but I was at a loss as to the date.

So 1919-21 seems about right for date?

So are we finally starting to come around to the notion that Bulova did not always put their name on the dial in their early watches.

I've thought that for a while Admin....and these younger models are showing up in enough numbers now to suggest this is may be true...  or borrowing from Marks analogy...the bases are almost loaded.  A few more good examples could lead to a grand slam home run...

FWIW, There are a lot of companies that didn't put their names on their dials, I have boxes of the same style watch, all from the same era, teens to twenties.
