A very nice 6722. In the early days this shape that I call the "cut corner tonneau" shape was advertised as 18K solid gold or just as filled. The subject watch proves it also existed as 14K solid gold. Later the name of this shape changed to Ramona. By then it was advertised 14K solid gold and not 18K anymore.

We have ad advert showing the 14K solid gold version for $45.00.

I'm tentative 6722 for now as the 14K gold version may have been given its own number. Note the dial is the later style. I would tend to agree with 1922. Movement looks fairly early.

I guess I'm tentative on the 6722 ID as the gold content differs from the supporting advert. I do agree on the year, well done on your research Jaroslav, this is a wonderful little Bulova.
