Who says a bargain can't be found. 1928 Templar I believe...could be wrong but it sure does look like Mr. Bakers in the database. Really awesome condition running and keeping good time. Not a bad deal for 75 bucks

Nice find!  I would agree it looks like a Templar but the dial is like the other Templar like this one https://www.mybulova.com/watches/1929-templar-9394 Maybe a replacement, maybe an option at the time?

I see what your saying. It also looks to be a bit wider in the center than Mr. Bakers 28 and the ad but the cresent moon date code make me think that there may have been 2 models to choose from, the wide one or the narrower one.

I am also curious on what the bright and oxidized finish looked like!

Not sure about that. This one is obviously the "bright" one. Also there are 2 29's in the database one that looks like Mr. Bakers 28 and a wider one like this one with the updated case design.

Hmmm, Mr Baker DOES have a watch like this! Alas it is "Not a Templar" is Unknown. They are very close but the Templar is quite a bit narrower!

Alas, 1928 Bulova Unknown or as I call it "Not a Templar"

Oxidized might mean a kind of matte or dull finish? I'd laike to see that, too. 

Unknown for me for now.

We have a  number of entries in the database for this model, but alas the model name has so far eluded us. One day...one day!!!

Based on the others in the DB and not finding an ad match it will be Unknown for now
