...here We go.

 

Constantin,

The image displayed above is taken directly from the Complete Price Guide to Watches by Cooksey Shugart, Tom Engle and Richard E. Gilbert.

As noted in its title the publication is a 'price guide', not a model ID guide and to Date more than one Bulova ID found within the guide have been proven incorrect by vintage advertisement.

ad Dated 1929 http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/1929-AD8.jpg

The guide also states 17 Jewels, the subject having 15.

Yes, I noticed the jewels inadvertence...
At least we have a picture of the model, even the name is not confirmed by any advertisement.

Engraving is different on this one. I don't think I've ever seen it before.
