Additional Information: 

Plainsman has one so I had to have one too...in fact he sent me the link to it...Thanks Jerin!

I was expecting a 7J 6 AE movement in this one, but much to my suprise it has a 17J 6 AF power plant. The dial is near mint and other than one small wear-thru spot on one corner of the back cover, it is in excellent shape and running great.

The dial is White with Gold applied numbers & Art Deco scrolling along the top & bottom of the dial. The case measures 19.7mm wide, 39.8mm lug to lug, and 12mm between lugs. It is 10K RGP and is stamped Bulova with the A.S. shield between the lugs. The band looks period, it is 10K Gold filled made by Jay-Kel,  and is in super shape.

I know Jerin & Lisa both have one of these that are 1937's and 7J 6 AE movements, and I seem to remember Mark also having one, but couldn't find it in the data base. It is dated with the movement, because if we go by the case serial number, it would indicate 1931 or 41, so case serials may not apply to all of these older A.S. cased Bully's.

Unknown for now unless somebody has a name for it.
