Beautiful watch but an unknown to me.

Plains, I think you should melt down all your solid gold watches and retire on the gold price alone :-)

Ohhhh so kidding.....don't!!

Gorgeous little watch and in really nice condition.

Interesting that you cannot find a date stamp.....should be there somewhere. I think I see a circle, but could just be seeing what I want to see.

1924-1925 certainly seems the right period for this style, but alas I didn't find an advert match either.

Just gorgeous!  I love the engraving and sapphire placement.

Seems to be an Unknown

Very nice watch! These unsigned cases always pose a serious problem to identify as original Bulova's......

The engraving is exactly the same as the Eileens that I have seen. These are unsigned too, so in any case the case-maker is (probably) the same that increases the likelihood that Bulova may have bought this one too and not ONLY the Eileen from this case-maker. That was probably done to fill a certain price point. The 14K Mermaid cost $40 in 1925, and the 18K Eileen $75. And for this shape, there was nothing in between, enough space to have a model in between.....

All in all, beautiful watch: Unknown.

The 6P's of1925 ran from serial 92 thousand until 124 thousand, so you would expect to find a circle somewhere. And it is there: right of the crown wheel underneath the two screws.
