Hi: Hope someone in this forum can help me identify a model name and manufacture date for a ladies Bulova that my Dad had given to my Mom early in their marraige.I've attached a pic of its front and back. I had it serviced locally. Is keeping perfect time. I have been checking its time for the last ten days. At that time I rewind the watch and then set it aside for the next days check. Yesterday I had a jeweler open the back to see if we could locate any of the symbols used by Bulova between 1924 and 1948 to designate movement date. He located a "T" symbol near the stem set screw. Also 5AB" was found imprinted on a small rectangle.
The watch face has 3 diamonds on top and three diamonds below .
The back of the watch, at the upper top says BULOVA, below that it says 14 K. One the very bottom is a the serial number : 215152
It is marked on the movement 17 jewels. He aslo found near the fast/slow adjustment a square symol with a slash through it , an X , and a W. He said it represented 0XW.
Since the Bulova symbol list for 1924 - 1948 use a "T" to represent both years 1932 and 1942, he was inclined to think the model year was 1932 because of the appearance of the watches face. I'm stll note certain what year this watch was manufactured and what its name is? Any help identifying this watch is greatly appreciated.
When I look at it, it's 1960 again and I'm 5 years old and Mom is dressed to the nines and wearing her Bulova. Funny how a simple watch can make one miss someone so very much.
Thanks again everyone:
