Additional Information

I believe this is an early Clara Barton.  It has a 10K rolled gold plate case with Bulova and a small shield on the outside of the case with a 1938 serial #.  Bulova Fifth Ave. New York on the inside of the case .  It has a working 7AM 17 jewel movement with a 1938 crescent moon date stamp.  The dial is in nice shape.  It has the same case and 8mm lug width as my other Clara Barton watches.  I might change out the band for a leather one.

Full ad and comparison shot.  I think the 1939 grey unknown is a Clara Barton as well but may never know for sure.

Collecting Bulovas is like eating potato chips. Start out with a small handful in a dish (being good)  and end up with the bag in your lap........

Another nice find!
