I think this is a Patricia. It is in lovely condition and runs strongly.

ad Dated 1925 http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/1925-bulova%20ad...

The only difference I could descerne between the 'PATER' and the 'PATRICIA', besides the Date of manufacture, is the 'PATRICIA' is advetised to have a RGP Case.

'PATER'

Here's a 1926 Pater ad snippet (left) and 1925 (right):

And a 1928 Patricia ad:

I didn't see another Patricia ad which indicates gold plate (vs fill in subject watch and Pater ads), but some examples of Patricia in watch database indicate gold plate.

I don't know if it is the artist's rendition or not, but the wire lugs are missing on the Patricia too, ads are later also.

6 votes for Pater.  12 voting members.  Hard to be entered as anything but Pater, but a possible "draw".  In those instances, maybe admin gets to vote twice to determine the outcome of the "draw", since he has "two accounts" :)
