Additional Information

I picked this one up just because I think the dial is pretty cool.  I know they made these black/gray dials but haven't seen one on a ladies model like this.  Looked through the ads and didn't find anything.  The box it came in reads Lady Bulova on the outer box but I don't know for sure it is the original box.  Love to hear what you all think it might be.  Thanks.

I agree with you on that, seems to fit perfectly.  Yes seems like it is looking like an Unknown.  Thanks for looking : )

This is a really interesting watch, but I can't find anything quite like it in adverts.

The sweep seconds points to a medical usage, as it is a hair too early to be a Military type.

Unknown for now.

I think this ad confirms that there was a line of nurse's watches in this case.  This ad is from 1939.
