Bulova 1940 -Unknown
Well... I gotta tell you, it takes a lot for me to get stumped. I know most of these old dogs, especially around 1940, but every once in awhile I can still come across something and I'm like... whaaaaaaat the heck is that?! This watch is one for me.
I have no clue what this watch is. We have one other in the database posted by FifthAvenue quite awhile ago. How crazy is that, only two examples of this model in all this time?
Here's Fifth's database entry: http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1940-unknown-3710
The case is stepped, has sweeping seconds hand. Just a really unique little watch. Pretty cool indeed.
Bulova marked case and movement.... this is all Bulova.
