Hi, I bought this recently, apparently 14k gold filled... any other information anyone could provide would be gratefully appreciated, thank you.
Yours is probably closer to 1928 or 1929 and it is named the Dianne.
IMO this record is too conflicting and lacking details to assign more than one star. A two star 1924 Dianne w/o movement info, case SN suggesting 1929 (maybe case SN?). Could it be the case of a Dianne? Maybe. I can't find a Dianne ad (1924 thru 1930) and link provided by admin doesn't work any longer. Nice watch though...
As discussed here, some of us don't believe the very blurry ad reads, "Dianne", rather we think it reads, "Daphne": http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1929-daphne-3070?page=1
So, now this watch is listed in the database under both names.
Note: The link I provided is the same post that Admin linked to above. After the "Daphne" discussion, the watch name was changed by the owner, so Admin's link no longer works.
In reply to As discussed here, some of us by NOVA
Yes case SN does suggest 1929. I'll update in root record and note as such. Also looks like the ad which was used for this model name was determined to be "Daphne" not Dianne. See Daphne record and ad discussed at:

Should I update model ID to Daphne based on above?
EDIT: 2012.11.19 Changed from Dianne to Daphne.
