Movement Serial No.:
Case Serial No.:
I bought this movement off of the net not knowing what it was other than what I could see of it (bad Pictures)and it looked worth taking a chance on since it was cheap. Turns out it's a Bulova. It appears from the name stamping "Bulova W. Co." to be a 1924 or earlier model. However on the plate it also has the triangle denoting 1926 manufacture. The triangle has a 13 in it although it can't be seen in the pictures. There is also the word Swiss stamped in script on the plate. It is a 17 jewel, 4 adjustment. It has the words "Thin H "on the bridge and on the barrel bridge is the number 1380. I believe the works/bridges are nickle plated. There is nothing (that I could see) stamped underneath the balance cock but I haven't taken it all the way down yet.
The dial is silver metal with painted Arabic numerals and on the back of the dial is the name L.Meroz-Hurst who I understand made dials for a lot of companies. Also on the dial plate is the number 549227. There is also a number 7 on the dial plate up towards the winding mechanism. I don't know a whole lot about watches and everything I've been able to find has come directly from this site. I have been able to find no reference to the "Thin H' designation but I would would almost assume it is a model designation of some type. The balance is free and it appears that with a cleaning and oiling this watch will run. In the pictures you can see where some ambitous soul appears to have pried it from it's case, probably for gold recovery. Luckily they didn't hit anything vital .
I appreciate any information anyone might have or any ideas of where else I can search.
