Additional Information: 

This watch is the twin brother to my other Oakley. It has the hash marks for numerals including the sub seconds track and the tracks are black. The case back is 10k gold filled as is the case and bezel. Dial, case and movement are signed Bulova. As always the watch has been cleaned and oiled and runs and keeps excellent time. I purchased this watch for the movement and it was in such good shape I decided to just fix it. The dial is in very good shape and the watch has a new glass crystal as does my other one. I did not take photos of the movement as it is the exact same movement as the other Oakley and it is not easy to replace the movement in the case with out running the risk of damage to the balance wheel because it is a hinged case and difficult to get the movement back into. I will photo it if it is necessary to get it published or to answer questions.

Many thanks to Dave.
EDIT: 2013.02.01  The case has two sets of serial numbers:
                             Outside caseback:  225269    Inside caseback: 4027138

I am now the custodian of this fine watch, thank you buddy.
This watch has two sets of case serial numbers, the outside one JP has given above, and the internal case back set are: 4027138.
This would give a date of 1934.
There are also many jewelers marks, so many it is impossible to fit any more in!
JP, did you notice this while you had it?
EDIT:- Actually, date mark on movement is a circle, and movement serial number is 741992.
