Additional Information

Rather large ladies for 1931 I think.  Probably the most etched/scrolled case I've seen for a Bulova ladies watch.

The dial is really cool with metallic designs.  Sapphire type crown.  I'm assuming 14k plate but I don't know.

A pretty wild 16 Jewel, 10 A movement.

I don't know this watch and will look in the ads but it's pretty usual.

Additional Information

The hands are of a blued type of metal. Lapis or sapphire in the winding stem. Engraved on the  front and back. The face where the hands sit has stripes. It has the original band. It looks like the 1922 158 however that watch does not advertise with a metal/gold band.Rumor has it that this watch was a wedding gift to my great grandmother. Their first child was born in 1902. That would place this watch at 1902 or prior if the story holds true.

there is also a "coat of arms" (i used google translate for that because i don't know the english word, it's "blason" in french). I don't think this is a bulova case.

The movement is a very nice bulova 10A 16j ; serial number  115595
there is also a symbol for the date code (probably how i dated it)
The dial is a metal dial with bulova on it.
