Movement Serial No.:
Case Serial No.:
I purchased this watch from Timemachines (Mike) recently and am updating the record. It's the same "Unknown" watch we had before with a couple new photos and some new specs. I've changed the year due to the updated serial number (mis-stamped "0" leading) and because there is a second hand stamped Omega date code on the movement above the cresent moon original date code.
There are two known examples of this amazing watch, the1930 Bulova cover of the iconic Piping Rock.
Ownership and Model Year updated 5/12/2013 - previous year was recorded as 1928.
Following is Mike's original description:
"I have had this watch 20 years and just decided to fix her up, I have no idea of the model name, nor can I find any old ads, or pictures of it. This watch may have been for a different world market, or one of a few prototypes ever made.
The watch looks like a Hamilton Piping Rock with hinged lugs, black porcelain bezal, Rodium plated case, marked "Bulova Quality pat. Jan. 11, 1927"
Comments , and research welcome. Thanks Mike"
