Additional Information

I do not own the watch, but I got permission from the seller (a member here "Rachel G") to use their pictures to catalog the watch.

Such a cool watch I've never seen her before.  Looks like a grill from a 30's coupe!

She's sporting a two tone solid gold Bulova marked case!

Yep, that's a keeper. Wow that is cool. Never seen anything like it.

Is the case serial number really "0"?

Very cool and very Art Deco. Alas, for me it's also very unknown.
