Additional Information

I have been wanting to get one example of an emerald stoned early ladies watch.  The Miss Liberty was my top choice.  They are pretty pricey so I had almost decided I wouldn't be getting one when this one popped up at a price I was happy with.  One of the stones is chipped but other than that I am very happy with it.  It is marked Bulova Quality, has a 15 jewel 6AP movement that started up for me.  I hope to pick up a filagree band for it at some point.

That's a real beauty, congrats! I personally think the Emerald and Sapphire accented watches are classic and really are a great style snapshot of the time period.

Thanks Bob!  I agree and felt it was worth adding to my collection even though it is not my main interest just for that reason.

1930 Miss Liberty.

This watch model was one of the first I ever serviced when I started my business, and set me on the road to being a Bulovisti.

I've always liked this model as it was the first ladies Bulova watches I owned and I think one of the original watches entered into the database back in 2006. To this day I'm still searching for a correct filigree band.

I like that it was a popular watch at the time it was sold new.  Holds a little more of a historical point for me.  If I ever see a correct filagree band I will let you know : )

Hi Alex,  Thank you!  I really wanted an emerald example so I was pretty happy to find this one.  And with the green cabochon crown.  Thank you for the advise on the movements.
