Based on the size and styling I would estimate the Watch to have been manufactured in the late 1930's. The Case seriel number tells Us 1939.

Thank you so much for all your help!!

 

Is there Bulova value catalogs I could get? Also is it worth going to a jeweler for an appraisal in your  opinion?

Hi apandaz - it's a nice little watch you have. There is, I'm sorry to say, no catalogs. Our quest to ID all the old Bulova watches people from all over the world bring us would so much easier if there were catalogs. We have an extensive collection of vintage advertisements that we use to ID these wonderful old watches. By clicking on the link in fifth ave's post you can see the page he found with your watch shown.

We aren't qualified to do valuations or make recommendation as such.  There are too many factors involved.
