My vote is 1932 Dolly Madison
Yes, that certainly looks like the same watch face. Thank you! I wasn't sure whether it was a 1932 or 1942. The date symbols on the chart looked exactly alike for 1932 and 1942.
I'll side with Jabs, 1932 Dolly Madison
Your watch looks to be in amazing condition. 1932 Bulova Dolly Madison certainly has my vote also.
Thank you. It runs, albeit a little fast. I purchased it at an auction in an old box with miscellaneous jewelry and watches.
From what year is that ad you post, Jabs? All th ads I found so far do not have the two vertical engravings on the sides of the window going from top to bottom on the front side.
it´s September 1932 (when click to attached image view all advert)
Hello chicky28, welcome to myBulova, this really is a wonderful find, the watch is in remarkable condition. Thanks for sharing it.
1932 Bulova Dolly Madison
PS - I'm a bit of an historian so I am compelled to point out that full name of the wife of the fourth President of the United States of America (James Madison) was:
Dorothea Dandridge Payne Todd Madison, she was known by the diminutive "Dolley" (as opposed to Dolly).
Thank you! I am also a historian and appreciate that tidbit of information!
This watch runs very fast. I am wondering if it would be worthwhile to have a watch repair shop take a look at it.
