1927 Vintage Bulova Mens Watch Franklin Art Deco Radium Dial 14k WGF 15J
1927 vintage Bulova men's watch in the stylish Franklin art deco model, the square 14k white gold fill case handsomely engraved and inlaid with black enamel Greek key decorations at the corners. This manual wind mechanical watch features a radium dial and what appears to be Fuseaux hour and minute hands, both finished in a creamy white radioluminescent paint / enameling that accents both the hands and hour markers. A square second dial occupies the six o'clock position.
This vintage Bulova watch has a 15-jewel movement (serial no. 254650, model no. 10AN) that shows a square 1927 manufacture year movement date code. The case inner panel is marked Bulova 14K Gold Filled American Standard, Pat. Jan. 1, 1927, with a serial number of 8380108, while the back of the case shows an elegant etching of the name George, likely a special gift from a loved one.
The square case measures approx. 26.5 mm (1-1/16 inch) wide, excluding the crown, a size that could be worn by a woman as well.
The crystal is in great condition, showing no notable scratches to detract from the watch's appeal.
The black watch strap is a high-quality genuine leather replacement band from Stuller, in excellent condition, with a 20mm lug width.
In great working condition and keeping good time. Last service date unknown. This vintage Bulova beauty is one to be proudly worn!
