Hi All,

I had picked up a 1935 "Miss America" a week ago and posted same on site, but last night my buddy gave me a birthday gift of a running condition 1936 Dolly Madison. Bracelet is by Hadley. I thought you would like to see it. At first I, being a novice, thought it was another "Miss America" but after I posted it I saw a "Dolly Madison" and was confused. Luckely a kind member here told me the correct one.

Many Thanks,

Terry

Terry, do I detect another budding Bulova collector ;-)

Hi simpletreasures,

The word addiction comes to mind. They are really nice and fairly cheap to collect.

Cheap is a relative term Terry ;-) Some can be had at a reasonable price, some on the Bay are going for outrageous and obscene amounts! Like every addiction, you just have to keep it at a manageable level. You'll know when it's out of hand when your living out of your car, and all your watches are stored in a semi-truck and trailer :-) Were all addicts here, welcome to the club....

Terry,

The steps on the Case Bezel make the Watch more likely to be (C) the 'DOLLY MADISON' as shown in this 1936 ad.

The Ladies are a joy to ID...
