DarHin...in that example there are some numbers on dial side of main plate...wonder if this example has number on dial side of plate too....and what they might mean?

Bulova Quality inside case back signature, with a seven digit serial number appearing to start with a "1"?

1932 Ad confirming the Ardsley came with a 17J movement.

Well done,JimDonn---------you nailed it.

[/quote]  Thanks.  Kind of strange that the 17 Jewel Movement seems to have been added as an after thought to the ad.   Clearly indicating purpose.
