Watch Description

Please ask for any other information needed, I don’t have experience in what information might be helpful. The year I thought was 1939 but possibly 29? I could not find it in the adverts in 39

Hello and welcome to myBulova!  I have looked and haven't been able to find a match yet.  Lovely watch, thank you for sharing it with us.  The date would be 1929 as this style was gone by 1939.

Unknown so far

Welcome! Pretty watch. What is marked on the inside of the back cover? There should be a name (Bulova) , serial number, gold content and likely a patent date.

Based on the movement mark, it's a 1929. The case serial number would be helpful (if present) to confirm.

I know I have seen this one before, but don't know where. I am coming up empty on an ad, but still looking.

I thought it was a Laurel at first glance but it has a different case shape and engraving.  Very similar though.

It is similar to the Laurel but not quite the same. I don't think I see a match in the advert dB either

Is Doris an option? Advert is from 1929.

Doris in ad almost looks like it has a triangular stone on either end of case with perhaps a diamond on either side of it as opposed to flower engraving.. Case shape between lugs doesn't appear the same either.

Yep I think you're right....the price would also indicate that as well. Scrap the Doris suggestion.

Sorry, I'm currently at a loss and at this point I have to say
