Very, very nice.

This is advertised in December 1924 as the Minerva, and as the 155 in June of 1923.

There is slight differences in jewel count/gold content, but both come as gold-filled cases.

Case is 1923, movement 1924.

Minerva for me.

Hello m.sgoyros, welcome to myBulova, this certainly is a beautiful ladies watch. I'm not convinced that the model name is Minerva but it is possible that it is. The details of the engraving on your watch are clear but on the advert we have they are a bit had to distinguish. In he ad, it appears that the engraving along the top and bottom of the dial changes pattern as it comes up from the sides. Also the ad states the case of the Minerva is solid, not gold filled. Here is a snip from a 1924 ad:

I would probably not ID this watch as Minerva but as Unknown. Either way it is a lovely piece, thank you for sharing it with us!

Interesting 10C movement too. Not sure if it's already in the movement database but if not I'll put it there.

Well i am not convinced that the model name is minerva but you all know something more than me and i appreciate your comments there was very helpful. Did you know what value has this watch?

Sorry, no valuations here. Try Ebay completed listings.

If you take away your watch's bracelet, and imagine it with a Grosgrain silk wristband, what would it look like?

 

 

The Minerva.
