hmmm, I suspect they got this advert wrong as both left and center watches are an American Clipper, non-engraved and engraved white dial versions.

Here is a 1935 ad for a 1935 Nathan Hale.   I looks like a 15J version of the 21J "Wandering Second" President.  Thoughts?

Interesting ad listing for the 1938 President listing it came as follows:

21 Jewels

Plain or Engraved

White, Two Tone or Natural Gold

Unfortunately no dial variations listed.

1934 Bulova Helena (first time seen). Have also found adverts showing this as yet another "Miss America". Seems every second ladies Bulova advertised during this period was labeled as such.

A 1932 Bulova Ambassador. We've seen this model advertised as an Ambassador before, but still do not have an actual Bulova advert top confirm.

Possible new model names of Hunter and Mayor.  From a 1939 sales booklet.  Hoping to get clearer photos soon and I will replace them.

Hunter

Mayor

The Mayor matches an unknown tentatively called a Major so we appear to have the real name now.  Thanks Kathy as I have one in my repair pile.  I added it to the Unknown.

As for the Hunter it looks like a Treasure / President Case.  So just thinking

Here is an ad from 1935 showing the center sweep.second version of the Trident called a Nurses Watch. The ad clearly states it comes in several models for both men and women.  The ad shows an engraved and I wonder if a non-engraved model was one of the other models.

Correct me if I am wrong but I think this is the first ad I have seen with the applied diamonds.   It does not necessarily mean it was a Bulova factory mod but interesting to see it.

Interesting ad for a model called a 1938 Bulova Virginian.  I assume it is supposed to be a Virginia but putting this out here just in case.
