Additional Information

I believe this is an Olympia.  It has a little wear and the dial is dirty but I am happy to have an example of it.

It has a 10K rolled gold plate case that was VERY difficult to open!  The movement is working well.  It has a 12mm lug width and I put a pigskin strap on it.  

I think it is pretty cool that Arde Bulova design this one.  At least that is what the article says, who knows if that is really true but a nice little side note.  The article/ad is from the Nevada State Journal, July 26, 1939.

How cool, it took us over ten years to find one and only four months to find another! I assume you're sourcing the pink and brown tweed suit as well?
