Hello everybody and thank you for your time and interest in my watch. My grandfather died in 1976 when I was 6 years old. Later on in my life, maybe mid-twenties I came across these two watches in a little blue box. These were with some other personal effects of my grandfathers. But I don't know what happened to them.
Fast forward to a few couple of months ago and I found a book of old photos of my grandfather and his friends in 1936-1938. I told my mom I would scan some in for her. Then a couple of weeks back, my girlfriend and I were talking about foreign money and I pulled out the family coin collection. What do I find? The little blue box. But now I am older and recognize something interesting when I see it.
The little blue box turns out to be the original Bulova box for the other watch, but we can look at it later.
This watch really intrigues me. It think because of the beautiful art deco design. So, I proceeded to start searching all over the Internet for old Bulova watches. I found a lot of really good information. Once I started gathering all of the information together, I noticed something. Almost all of the good info came from myBulova.com. So I decided to fire up an account and ask the experts what they thought this watch was exactly. Unfortunately I cannot find an advert with this exact square case.
Oh and I mentioned some photos before, that is because I believe this is a photo of my grandfather wearing this watch. The photo is dated 7-25-1937. My grandfathers name was Robert John Whalen.
