1926 Apollo in 14K solid white gold. This one has a double date stamp Triangle over a Circle. Found in very nice unrestored condition. This is one of the few Bulova models I seen advertised with the same name for a solid gold (17J) or filled gold (15J). Full advert here.

Nice Apollo and a very interesting deviating case signature! Any thoughts on that?

Although American Standard (Bulova's own) made some solid gold cases and were stamped as such, Bulova also outsourced other precious metal cases and they follow different stamp protocols.
