NOTES:   We now have numerous ads and trademark information establishing the Rubaiyat as a Bulova product, as discussed in Searching for the Beginning.  Information about American Standard signed cases is included in Bulova Case Signatures.  The basis of the date assigned to this watch is explained in Dating a Bulova, which now includes a detailed timeline for assessing watches made prior to 1926.
