Additional Information

Rare Brunswick-I didn't think this watch existed until a member showed me a picture of the real watch. This is the first Brunswick I have seen at auction. This Brunswick has a varient dial with a silver background and hand painted black numbers and tracks, cathedral hands and a raised gilded Bulova logo.

Rating Panel Discussion & Vote Request

I respectfully request a panel discussion on why this 1931 Brunswick is rated at zero stars. Having a hand painted dial varient should not be a reason for a zero stars rating. The Brunswick is very rare & does not deserve a negative rating.

It appears that the stars were blank when I wrote the above request.

So consider the above as Entered in Error! Thanks

Why isn't this rated 3 stars? I agree with Wayne that just because the dial has been re-done doesn't stop the watch as being correctly ID... This should be 3 stars, IMO

My vote is Brunswick.

Or is watch non-conforming? May depend on our working definition of non-conforming, and the dial.  Is it a variant or a fancy/custom dial added when?  Just curious.

I simply love the early Art-Deco design of the engraving on this case, which still shows signs of the earlier Art-Nouveau, with the wings and floral/leaf effects as opposed to the later 30's and 40's harder, more formal lines. A very attractive watch, and still a Brunswick.
