A very nice Elinor. During 1926, with the Theodora and Judith, Bulova started using emeralds where before it was exclusively using sapphires. During the later years until 1939, most models became available with both and were advertised as such. The Elinor is an exception. It was only advertised with sapphires but this model proves it was available with emeralds as well. Most models  by the end of the 20's are using the emeralds, so it seems like the public at that time preferred green over blue. This Elinor confirms that again.
