I saw one in the database just like it listed as "unknown" and also went through the ads with no luck, so I guess probably still unknown.  The one in the database has a beautiful filigree band with matching stones, but had a plain crown. This one has a stone in the crown.  Its in great shape and running strong... It's  on my wife's wrist as I write this...

That's one pretty sweet little number and it's hard to find these still running. Even i it remains UK I'll bet your Wife won't care.

I've seen this model now and again. I'd agree it's a Doris. Very nicely kept.

Terrific!  Thanks for identifying it. I didn't look past the 1928 ads...  Wow $50 was a lot of money in 1929...

Hi dhhirsch, can you post a picture of the inside case signature or let me know if it says "Bulova" in combination with "New York", or "Bulova" in combination with "American Standard". Thanks!
