Here is an unusual one that has me a bit perplexed. Two tone case is white with a yellow gold stripe on the bezel opening verticals. Face has raised gold numerals - "Dress Face" and is a perfect match to the case. Inside of single hinge case back is marked "Bulova Quality o A o" with the 1927 patent date and serial number. Movement is a 7 jewel 10AN retaining the original crystal clear dust shield.
Watch appears to me to be all original, but who knows. Overall physical condition looks like it wasn't worn very much and was put away in a drawer after the crystal was severely damaged. No plating wear or "egging" of the lug pin holes. Back of case nearly perfect. Leather band appears to be from the same time period and looks like it has been on the watch a very long time.
This appears to be a 1930 LaFayette variant based on case shape, side engraving, measurements and crystal dimensions. My measurements may be off a little off, as my digital mic is acting up and not working properly. Based on other Lafayettes in the Db that provide ballpark measurements of crystal, this one is really close.
Anybody have a spare crystal they can be talked out of? I really like the simplicity of design of this one, and it's keeping time. Would love to bring this survivor back to "wristworthy".
