Shows the history of the watch being the No. 5969 turning into the Gilda. (1924 ad)

Ok so we have a later 1928 replacement movement which explains the 1928 date in the watch entry. However we can say that the case dates to 1924. So I will update the record accordingly.

Any objections to renaming this gorgeous girl to Gilda, based on the cut over advert which shows the monumentous moment that Bulova started giving watches a name people could connect with, rather than just a boring model number.

Note that after nearly 40 years Bulova have started to give some of their new watches a name again.....thanks myBulova!!!!!

Excellent observation Stephen. I will agree

Based on case date, 1924 Gilda.

Noting movement swap
