Ok guys.  So this recently sold on the bay.  I did not sell nor buy it, but I got permission from the seller to use his pictures as this is the only model of this watch I've ever seen.  The seller was kind enough to let us put it in the database.

Here is the seller's description:

"A beautiful antique Art Deco Bulova ladies wristwatch in a 14K yellow and white gold filled case.  The case measures 14mm x 24mm (not including the crown or the lugs).  Marked on the dial BULOVA.  Marked inside the case back JUNE 10, 1924 / BULOVA / 14K GOLD FILLED / NEW YORK / 0194440.  Marked on the movement BULOVA WATCH CO. / FIFTEEN 15 JEWELS / SWISS / 15015 / 5AP."

Looks to be a white gold with some sort yellow gold banner or curtain down the bezel.  Super unique, and it looks to be all Bulova.  At first I thought, frankie, but after looking closer... wow.

(IF YOU PURCHASED THIS WATCH IN AN AUCTION, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I'LL TRANSFER THIS RECORD TO YOU)

Thanks for getting permission from the seller Plains, it's a great watch to have listed here and hopefully one of us nabbed it as I would certainly consider this a rare bird. I too thought a Frankie when I first saw it, but the correct components are all there.

Hopefully we can ID her oneday.

Unknown for now.
