Very nice watch. By the way, how do you keep your nails so clean, Will?   : )

A guess on the production date?  I hope one of our mybulova family won this watch so we can ask more questions if needed.  Looks like a small marking on movement bridge next/below crown, but can't make what it may say, if anything.  I don't have any more info that above and don't know who/where the actual watch ended up after auction closed last week.   The eBay seller (diamondusa) was very cooperative and helpful, and happy to provide photos once the auction closed.

Hope I didn't steal someone's thunder, but this was too nice an example to let the info and knowledge slip away....

Based on the case serial number lets go with 1921, which would be my  best guess based on the movement model.

This watch is in amazing condition for something that is 91 years young.
Other panel member.... Your thoughts please so we can get the one published.
