Here are instructions, it's a bit tricky the first time (note: the 'image' icon is in a different place than in the instruction - it's the little green box two spots to  the left of the "ABC" icons.)

I missed the 21J as well and didn't even see the President model right next to the Treasurer.

Agreed with 1936 Bulova President.

Just confirming that the movement doesn't have a serial number, only the case.

Welcome!  I was doing the exact same thing, looking on the interwebs for my Grandfathers watch.  At that time we had much less info out there then now, (Thanks to Stephen, and the guys/gals here).

You'll find yourself thinking about these watches as a not just a time peace, but a frozen piece of time!  A bye gone era, where making something of quality meant something.  They paid attention to detail, and nothing was made to be just thrown away when it broke.  That's why when you find one of these old guys or gals watches there's a good chance you give the crown a little twist and it takes off running... after decades of neglect and 50-80 years old!  How crazy is that?!  Can you imagine anything regular item being produced today that will be running in 80 years?! 

Love these watches....
