1932 ??

Closest thing I found in the ads was for a 34 Miss Liberty but this is missing the engraving down beside the crystal like the Miss Liberty in the ad.

Outside casde # is 277777 and the number on the inside of the case is 2206178. No patene date on the inside of the case it only says Bulova Quality

I was just browsing the movement list and the 4AL is only listed as 30 and 31. If this model remains as an unknown at least you will have a 1932 (T) movement for the list

Close match for a 1932 Bulova Miss Liberty although I think we determined previously that the diamond mounting was different.

OK not a Miss Liberty, I can confirm that the diamond mount is kite in shape and not curved.
