Additional Information

I'm calling this a potential Stanford. The movement is a 10AN, 1931, 17J.  The 3 Stanfords in the database are all 15 J.  Having said that, I can't find anything that indicates what the jewel count actually should be and there is always the possibility of a 17 J variant.  Your call.  The case is marked Bulova Quality with a Jan. 11, 1927 patent date.  I relumed the hands but otherwise its as I received it.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Well, the case, hands and face appear to be a match to this one. Based on that, I will agree this is a likely

Definitely a Stanford case dial and hands but unsure of the 17J version.  I can only find ads for 15J versions.

Looks to be in fine condition Tom, nice find. I'd say the crown is original too. I'm going with 1931 based on the movement date code. There is a remote possibility that it's a replacement I suppose.
