Sorry, but no, I doubt that's a 1934 President. In fact the case looks to be an exact match to a Waltham I have. This would be your 1934 President as can be seen in the ads on file.

there's an ad showing a 4 step Bulova Case, '35 I think.

Case engraving pattern is Bulova (thanks Wayne, I'm catching on) as are the Dial charcteristics.

Is the case stamped Bulova?

We should not rule anything out until we have all the facts.

My gut says no, but we need to check.

Can't be a President.  The ends of the crystal are not curved and the President in this era was always 21 jewels.
