Just found this advert in our forums. Thoughts on it being a Bulova 'Cavalier'? The advert dates to 1936.

Another advert from 1938 showing the Bulova Cavalier. I think we have a match.

This one is a couple years earlier, from the 1934/35 Bulova Annual Report; it shows a few variations of this style. The Cavalier option is stated to be of the white and yellow combination. This does not match what the advert above states, which is natural/yellow, but the price is the same. Did the ad stating all yellow get the wrong name?

No mention of a leather strap though.

From what I can tell, the Hancock models did not have an engraved bezel.
