Watch Description

Well gents once again we've a mid-30's case stamped Bulova /w bell symbol on the case.  I've absolutely no doubt now, that these cases are the original mid-30's Bulova cases.  I've seen to many of them on to many legitimate models to think anything otherwise.  This watch again sports the 6AF that seemed to be popular in the long rectangular watches of these few years.  The bracelet came with the watch and matches perfectly so I believe it's the original as well.

Looks alot like my president  case ,band etc. minus the wandering second hand/ wheel. I cant see a second hand on this watch. Nice clean piece by the way. Is it running?

We have any idea what this guy is?

Light Bulb comes on dimly & then brightens! Consider the Breton in the 1933 ad. However, the movement in the ad is 21 jewels. The engraving pattern on the Breton & LE 4 appear to be the same. Whatcha think?

I'm thinking maybe not the Brenton there Mr. Wayne.  My pictures somewhat fail to show the case is a bit more stepped like the LE... but not as deep.

Here's more of what I think the Brenton is.... I have a guy waiting to go to the glass store as well as a redial on this one:

Looks like it has the Breton dial.
