Three stars for Mark's watch. : )

I really like this model of Treasurer.  The case on yours looks like it is in great shape, which means once you get the dial and hands fixed up, it's going to be a beauty.

What's wrong with the Dial and Hands

: p

I may try to clean this Dial, a lot of the marks are dust and debris from Years of neglect.

Looks like more than dust on this dial. Good luck cleaning this up overall nice watch. Wirhout the original band would it not be complete thus only rate 2 stars????

Jim,

a Model 'variant' has not been Named, so how would the strap / band come into play?

Looks like the dial may have been changed... notice the shape of the minutes track. But more importantly, the numbers do not conform to the barrel shape of the case as nearly well as in the ad example.

Good eye Jeff,

They also look smaller.

There is also a 1930 ad listed in the known's that shows a case change. http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1930-treasurer-1783

Pre 1930 case?

Take a look at the Treasurer that Mr. Baker has entered...You will see the difference in the dials.

Looks like a dial refinish there maybe they are off. I think the curvature of the numbers is fine ,the picture in the ad  was probably exaggerated. Another untouched dial would help.
