Can you upload a sharper pic of the case? It looks like it may be a Treasurer like this

except with a dress face. Movement (10AN) seems to be correct, but Jewel count is wrong. Those currently in the Db sport a 10AN - 15J.. Can you also double check that?

Engraving looks to be a match to the reference advert. Have request additional photos for confirmation. The lower 7 jewelled movement may just be a period replacement.

Treasurer looks like a match, very nice.

The case on this one is an exact match to the Treasurer of the time.What has me baffled is the 7 jewel movement(still a 10AN) and the fact that all the ones in the database have the radium dial and hands.

The entire movement may have been swapped out at some time in its history. Generally speaking though the case represents a 1931 Bulova Treasurer.
