Additional Information

This is a great looking ladies art deco from 1933.

The outside case number is noted above and the inside number is 310868.

The case is unmarked for metal content and inside says:  Bulova Quality

                                                                                                   Pat. Date June 10, 1924

This has a poppy flower crown, I am unsure if it is original but is the same style flower as other Bulova engraving.

The ad is from 1934 and while the case is a baugette style and not stepped the "sky scraper" case embellishments are the same so possibly this an earlier version of the Florence.

Thats a great looking case. Same front design. I wonder what it is?

Is the date stamp a X or a *

Definitely an X. 

So small just hard to make out in the photo, as well as in person without magnification.
