Watch Description

I have a Bulova pocket watch that I have seen no other examples of. It was given to an uncle of mine when he was 21, believed to be in 1925.

Here's a better image and a close-up of the area you identified, but there doesn't appear to be a date stamp there...

There does seem to be a circle mark stamped on at least 1 (possibly 2) wheel - see image. From the little I know, that doesn't conform to tradition, but there are no other marks that I can detect. 

Date stamp?

A 25 movement is a 26 case makes sense.

This case serial number is only 96 away from the one I previously owned which is 1659162

It appears the image didn't go through - I need to learn how to include them...

It looks like you tried to paste a copy of the image in rather than upload the image to the site. I've sent you instructions in an email.

I'll look to fix this now and take what you have provided in the paste and tranform into an image and then re-add accordingly.
