1931 Bulova Lone Eagle looks like a match to me.

Interesting that it has both interior and exterior serial numbers. I think this one should be dated by the interior (later) serial number, so I would be inclined to date the watch as 1932. The 1927 patent is for the dust cover design.

Still on my wish list....I do have a non runner variant, but have always liked this dial and hand version.

1931 Bulova Lone Eagle it is.
