For those interested, the movement is most likely a replacement. The probably year of the subject watch is 1929. This is based on the following observations for this type of wing lug models:

- in 1928, they were just signed with Patent date and 14K

- in 1929, “Bulova” was added to the signature as in the subject watch

- in 1930, the “rail track” on the bezel changed from crosses like on the subject watch to “two crosses + rectangle” rail track (let me look for a link)
