Determine the actual date by opening the back of the case and check the movement number and date code, then check the database here. If memory serves me this should be a mid 30's. Also check the ad database once you determine the year of production plus/minus a two year period.

Interesting.

The box shown does not seem to appear in any ads post 1929, the Watch in the box looks mid 1930's.  It certainly resembles the 1935 'MISS AMERICA', almost. - Although advertised as being available in a non engraved Case the mid 30's Miss has slightly different lugs.

Is the Case signed Bulova?

The watch shown IS NOT a 1930 "Miss America", however the box was used fot the 30' real "Miss America"

I thought you sold yours? Apparently I was wrong :-( 

I'll keep the peepers open for you, I picked one up 6 months ago for mine and still see them occasionally.
