Additional Information

Here's an interesting one,1936 dated case and movement with 10K gold plated case and back. Sweep second hand 13AE movement.

1936 Physician that appears to possibly be the first year for this design, and possibly one of only 2 years (1936 and maybe 1937) that used this movement. 1935 was dual dial and 1938 forward appears to have incorporated the 7AC. This appears to me to retain original hands, face, movement and glass crystal. Seller believed the band to also be original, that is an unknown with no ads available.

I believe this is the first watch bearing this movement uploaded in the Db. There is one photo in the movement range database of this movement; also in a Physician that was never added to the Db.. That movement is also dated 1936 with the case dated 1935.

Scratch another off my Bulova "bucket list".

Wow, I completely missed this one Bob, well found! This is a really nice watch. We don't see too many of this model.

No, I don't think it's luck Bob. The watch was looking for you and FOUND YOU, it's serendipity!
