Additional Information

Well boys... I snagged this fantastic men's Bulova Pocket watch for $31 dollars the other day.  It's unbelieveable how great this things look at 94 years old probably.

The movement is double stamped "triangle' and "circle".  So.. I believe the case is probably from 1924, and the movement was from 1925, but sold in 1926.  Not uncommon for this early of Bulova.

The case is marked:

B.W.C. CO.

"Monarch"

The really cool thing is the case serial is 223008, and if you look at the rim of the case the movement is in, you'll see stamped 23008.  I haven't noticed that before.

But the conundrum is these aren't marked as far as gold content.

So... if we don't know the gold content, it's going to be hard to determine the model number.  We have two watch advertisements from 1924 that match this watch.

This watch in 14k white gold is Model "472".

This watch in gold filled white is Model "470".

Also... there are stamps all over this thing, one of them is this near the date stamps:
