Additional Information

This is a Bulova Ladies watch with two (2) Diamonds and three (3) Rubies.

I dated this 1942 because of the "T" on the movement.

I'll start by saying this is a beautiful and unique watch. However, I'm afraid this one is going to fall in the non-conforming category. The movement is indeed Bulova, but the face is not, as indicated by "Bulova Movement". I also suspect the beautiful case is likely non-Bulova unless it is stamped as such on the inside or outside of the back.

@neetstuf-4-u, Thank you so much for this info, I cannot express the appreciation for everyone's help with my watches.  I am learning about how to check for "fake" Bulova watches.

Agree with neetstuf-4-u, without a photo of the inside of the case marked Bulova I would go with

Another sign that the case may not be original to the watch is when we see the word 'movement' on the dial. This usually implies that a watch movement has been re-housed into a aftermarket non-Bulova case.

I'd say Non-conforming also.
