This is a man's 1938 Bulova American Clipper in a 10K Rolled Gold Plate hexagonal step sided case. I'm told this art deco design was inspired by the Pan Am Airways Clipper Service of flying boats during the 1930s. The black hexagonal dial with gold numerals and accents is easy to read. The 17 jewel adjusted 10AE movement keeps time accurately. The watch still has the original adjustable bracelet, and it came in a period art deco Bulova box featuring the goddess of time. This watch is in good overall condition, but would be magnificent if fully restored. I was hoping somebody could suggest a qualified restorer who could re-plate the bracelet, replace or polish the crystal, and perform a CLA.
