Watch Description

Cool mid 1920's ladies Bulova in a Victorian styling.  She's sporting a solid 18K golf and platinum case, garnished with diamonds and sapphires.  Really cool filigree top and bottom bezel lug covers.

I believe we have a match to the 1924 "5969" for m the ad below.

The watch has a 1928 5AP movement in it, but I feel it was probably a replacement at some point.

What to say? All is said in the link above that Kathy posted. The illustration is of a Bruner case. Many brands (up to Gruen) had this model. The movement is an obvious replacement. The case is not a Bruner. We will never be able to trace its originality.

This one does not match the advert supplied in the engraving on the side on the bezel. While noting differences we kept the referenced watch with an ID on the linked watch we kept it at 5969, should we do the same with this beauty?

Reading back through the other post and comparing that watch with this watch I agree with what is being proposed. Keeping these grouped together as a Bulova 5969 seems best,
