I'd say yea it's a ladies... or was originally marketed as such :)  ...and that outside case back signature- Bulova below the serial number.  Is there a metal content hallmark?  Or anything on the inside case back?  Thanks for entering these great watches!

Hello William,

The case back says 10K Rolled Gold Plate.  Inside is unmarked except for the various service marks made by watchmakers long departed........ :-(

Thank you for your kind words.

Bob

...easy for you to say.  I'm not that familiar w/o going to the ads and watch database first.  But I'm getting more familiar with things by doing so.

Look at that tiny movement! Did pixies really exist back then or what? You would need really tiny fingers for working on it.

1934 Ad snippet for Miss Liberty (linked above):

No jewel count, but.....
Much different than the Miss Liberty of 1928-31, and morphs again into a different girl by 1950.

Very close, the ad is a drawing so I'll go along with the ID.
