I picked this up in a lot of two, where the other one was the one I was really after. However, this one is worth some discussion, I think. Here are the facts:
- 10AN 15J
- Shield symbol on movement, i.e. 1929
- Movement serial number of 65645 (or something close to that. . .very hard to read)
- No signature on back of case
- Inside of case reads, "B.WC.Co. . . Conqueror. . . 746952"
What intrigues me about this watch is that I don't think you can argue that the dial was made for any other case. It has too distinctive a shape and it too perfectly fits the shape of the bezel. This is not, to me, a clear cut example of a Bulova dial placed in a non-Bulova case, i.e., a Frankenbully.
What do you guys and gals think?
We have certainly seen that "fish" design on other Bulovas from the '20s.
What do you guys know about Bulova and B.WC.Co. in the '20s?
Could this simply be a replacement back for an otherwise genuine Bully?
