Watch Description

Purchased on Ebay in a lot of three ladies watches for under $10.  The watch is in great condition overall.  However, it is not running and is fully wound.  As you can see, it's in dire need of a full service.  The case back has the following text: 10K Rolled GOLD PLATE BULOVA 9465222. The bracelet is 12Kt Gold filled.

Thank your for posting your watch.  I checked and cannot seem to find a match to it.  Hopefully one of the other panel members will be able to ID this one.

Thanks Jim.  I also believe the crystal is glass.

I searched and wasn't able to find a match.  I found one ad with a different dial but no name to head me in the right direction.

Is it possible this is a 1949 watch? I looked through all the late 40's adverts but also came up Unknown

Based on this 1939 Ad I believe we have a 1939 Bulova Alma noting the different style dial.  This would be a first for the database for this name and case configuration.

I sent it to Stephen via MyAdmin to be added.  Nice two page ad full color ad.   Thinking 1939 but could possibly be 1940.
