This is a 1926 not 1935.

Bulova didn't produce 6AFs much after 1929/30.

INDEED...

Good one, Stephen...

I'm kinda slow, at 4:am...

CRAP... I even had that one in my FOLDER, with multiple sets of images, including that illustration!

DARN! Stephen beat me to the (vintage) PUNCHLINE...

Very different ladies watches in 1935, than the 20s varietals... Boxy rectalinier Deco Tanques with echoing rectangular and square alternated metal link chains.... (Or boxy gem encrusted French Baroque bezels, on the same long box tanque case framing = Art Deco/Noveau hybrids... on the higher end.) Or alternately... round dial cases with diamond round bezels on a slimline, tight rope band. (1935 Ad...)

Hmmm... I don't seem to have that particular 1926 (- 29?)  ad...

I've had to upgrade the SPAM filter to stop a bunch of Chinese User accounts and posts, so apologies if you are being effected.

Usually if it detects that the post is SPAM it will ask you to confirm with a CATCHA.

Is there any Bulova signature on the inside of the case? I am looking at one on internet and it only says "14kt" inside, so not hte typical "Bulova Quality" etc. case signature.

Solid gold and platinum cases sometimes do not have any Bulova markings on them.

Subject is a redial, this would originally be sterling silver with hand engraving, and baked-on numerals.
