Looking for help identifying this!  I looked through all of the ads for years 1927-1932 and didn't see it...  Dial is missing, but everything else in tact!  Thank you!

I believe this is the Bourbon.  Do we have an ad?  I think Lisa had one?

This is indeed the Bourbon. We only have a newspaper clipping. It was never advertised in the national magazines.

1929 Bourbon as seen below in a 1929 ad (in our short ad section).

That's VERY nice!  Mine has a leather band that the color has worn off of... I think your with the metal band is so much nicer!

Wow, thank you, everyone, for your assistance!  I would have never been able to find this info!  Interestingly, I picked this up at an estate sale auction for only $3.50 - might be worth it for me to try to get it fixed?  I'd stated in my post that it was the "dial" that was missing - but it's the CROWN (and maybe the stem ? I really don't know part names!)  The part that winds the watch.

That is called the stem. US3.50 is definitively a bargain. Personally I would have it repaired and wear it for special occasions! Other members may advise you where to go.
