Bulova 1930 -Unknown
Alrighty ladies and gents. I picked up this exquisite ladies model tonight. I think I've seen this model a couple times before.
She sports a 14k white gold case, with a ruby, emerald, diamond enlay. You can't see it very well but the seller said the emeralds are cracked and chipped. I'm thinking either really crappy emeralds or just glass that has busted. Eitehr way I think Mike should be able to replace for me.
Unfortunately the original movement was sent in to a watchmaker for repair... and the seller never heard from the guy again.
She states the original movement was a 5AP from 1927. She got a replacement 5AP and as you can see it's from 1932. This watch has been recently serviced and runs well.
I may or may not delve into getting a 5AP closer in year to the origional reported year. In fact I've picked up two 5AP's tonight to see what years they are.
Anyway boys... I've looked through all my ads... I don't have a clue what this beauty is.
She will be staying in my personal collection forever along side my other 18k Unknown ladies.... these will eventually belong to my daughter whose 4 right now... so they could well be 100 years old by the time they're hers!
Sellers pics... mine will of course be a my style when the watch comes in.
