Watch Description

10K yellow gold filled case and back. No noticeable wear to gold plating. No markings on inside of case back. Exterior marked "Bulova", with gold content and s/n. Date code on movement matches s/n as a 1936. Keeping near perfect time.

I was positive this was the  the unengraved version of the Treasurer. However, after reviewing others on site, the crystal measurements didn't  seem to jive with others already ID'ed. The search began. I believe this is the unengraved version of the 
1936 Phantom
Referenced ad dated 1936. Other on-site ads reveal it was offered engraved or unengraved in either white or yellow gold.

I couldn't find an ad to prove it but that band certainly has that period look to it.  That's a very cool watch.

Thanks Tom, I suspect the band is a period replacement, but works.

It certainly looks to be a match to the ad.  Nice looking watch and the band matches nicely.
