Your bracelet is missing the emerald on either side just after the connection to the lug wires. Not quite the same as the one pictured in the ad but I would say it is a Miss Liberty witha note of exception to the bracelet.

Very nice watch Bob, and a super job of restoration.

You are correct JP, but I never claimed the bracelet was original. A pretty good match though don't you think? If were going to note every watch posted here that doesn't have the original band were going to have a lot of notes.

Dam!

That is another nice one Bob!

These are real hard to find with 1. All the Emeralds, and 2. very little case wear! 3. a nice Filigree band which is probably the hardest to find...

A great one for your collection...Miss Liberty.

Mr Bruno,

Could You compare the Case of Your 1929 'MISS LIBERTY' to the Case of Your 1930 'UNKNOWN' http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1929-unknown-5394
