1935 - '36

not 1926 as entered.

The Watch is shown several times in database ads over the coarse of the early 1930's and is adverised in both Natural and White Gold

Database ad Dated 1934 gives Us the "plain or engraved bezel" clue: http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/bulova-ad-1934-3...

Database ad Dated 1937 finally gives Us the Movement Jewel count: 7 http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/bulova-ad-1937-3...

Good sluthing Fifth. (right click on any ad below to open full ad in new window/tab) ..and a strong "clue" for plain or engraved-1934 ad Fifth links:

1935 ad for Miss America: 

1936 ad for Miss America:

another 1937 ad:

Listed again here in 1938, but still only pictured as engraved case.
By 1940/41, the Miss America is a completly different model, w/ 17 jewels.

Triangle date symbol and first digit case SN of 5 suggest 1935 "Miss America" from me.
