Wow, great choice of band Bob! Makes the enamel really pop.

Hands vary but Vassar it is.

Vasser, agreed.

I'd have requested the hands be relumed, and I think I would have stuck to a black band to contrast the green enamal. In my mind it would pop more so than with the green band which seems to take my eye away from the watch.

All in all, Gorgeous watch Bob.

I see your point Shawn, but the green band seams to bring out the art deco in the watch for me.

well worth the wait Mr Bruno.

In 1928 becomes the 'MISS AMERICA' and there is a database ad which states Radium Dial, although the image does not depict a Radium Dial,  so I think the Hands are correct.

ad dated March 1928 http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/1928-Bulova-ad-1928-Mar-17.jpg

For curiousities sake what is the datecode of the Movement?

Splendid example of ladies watches. Vasser for sure. If you need the hands relumed PM me Bob.

If We go by the Case seriel # then 'VASSAR', if the Movement is '28 then 'MISS AMERICA'

I go by case s/n for myself. Here is a picture of the mvt. Maybe some of you younger guys with better eyes can see a symbol.
