Hi all 

I received this ladies watch today. it is a 15 jeweled unadjusted 6AF movement. It has the serial number 256745 and the T mark. the inside of the case has the following :- Bulova Quality .Pat. June 10 1924.

On the outside of the case it has the serial number 221526 stamped on the end by the logs. the edges are engraved .The case is hinged and still has the movement dust cover in place, and the movement is running strongly.  The dial is in a pretty bad way , although I have tried to clean . The numerals and the word Bulova are highly raised and looks to have been gold in color.  Looking through the db I think this might be a 1932 Carolyn model ,but I will leave the identification to the illustrious members of the panel.

I know this ad only shows the Carolyn in WGR but in a previous ad it states it being in both Yellow and White 10k rolled gold plate

Here's a 1928 ad snippet for Carolyn, a very different gal in 1928.

Below is 1934 Ad Snippet on left and 1935 ad snippet on right.

Unless we have an unknown which is mis-ID'ed, this is a first for this style and year of Carolyn.
I'm good w/ 1932 Carolyn.

I would agree, it is so hard to see te details in these tiny ads. Pretty sure I see Carolyn too.

Yes it is difficult as the pics are all so small.  I have looked at as many ad examples as I could find. and can only really go off, is case shape ,jewel count ,and the dial details, shown in the ads.
