Other Details


NOTES:  I believe this watch dates to the late 1940s based on online research of similar watches.  I have not, however, been able to locate a Bulova date code on the movement.  The leading "9" in the serial number likely indicates 1949, although the Swiss made, stainless steel models sometimes do not follow the normal serial number sequencing.
