Additional Information

Unknown 1936 in near mint unrestored condition. Exceptional watch on what appears to be the original band. I bought this as a women's watch, but strongly believe it's a men's.

Case measures  17mm x 27mm minus the crown and lugs. Scalloped top of bezel on sides of crystal with engraving on case sides. Incised lines on ends. Lugs step down on insides to meet the band.

Appears to be the same watch w/white face as Plainsmen's unknown uploaded in 2011 as seen here.

Keeps perfect time.

This photo shows it next to a 1937 American Clipper as a size comparison. Submitted unknown watch is on the right.

That's a men's watch, great dial.

I think it's an American Clipper.

Very nice find!  Looks like it is in great shape.  Does it say 5-10K Gold Filled on the back?  That is a first for me to see.

Thanks! "B-10K Gold Filled" B for Bulova instead of the whole name spelled out. Case back is signed "Bulova Fifth Ave, New York" on the inside. I think that was a 1930's thing.

I don't think I've seen this case style before. Similar to the President and Phantom models, but the case is certainly unique to have yet another unknown model.
