Additional Information

I'm guessing a Catherine.

Case is marked "Bulova Quality" with a June 10, 1924 patent date.  Movement is a 6AF consistent with the other Catherine in the database.  However that one is 7 jewels and this one is 15 jewels.  The ad just says "bejeweled".  It runs.

That is a real beauty, Tom. I have no problem ID-ing this as

1931 Catherine, noting face differs from ad.

Dear Tshanno, your watch is the Catherine. Nice watch, first introduced in 1930, but first advertised only in 1931.

I agree with a 1931 Bulova Catherine also noting the different dial from the ad.
