Hi, there- I’m a first-timer, here, so any help you can provide would be GREAT!  I’ve spent a couple hours researching this watch on my Bulova.com, but as there are no similar models, I’m guessing Debutante? Thoughts??
Thank you!

Case number starts with a '6' for 1926. 6AF movement may or may not be original.

Dating to 1926 Bulova Debutante, unless there are objections.

The case serial is incomplete. It should be 7 digits. Given the location of the 6 visible digits, the first is missing. Digit 2 and 3 are a 6 and 8. The only possibility therefore is that the first digit is a 7 (568, 668, 868 and 968 didn't exist). The last picture above indeed shows a hint of a 7. 7684530 places it in 1927, in line with the movement date code.
