Here is a Bulova Senator from around 1935. 10K yellow rolled gold plate case. 17 jewel adjusted 10AE movement, still accurate. Restored rose gold dial face, new crystal & band.

    Your watches movement has a triangle date code so that would mean the movement was manufactured in 1935. According to a theory discovered by a panel member at mybulova .com the first number of the case s/n is the actual year of manufacture of the watch. That would make your watch a 1936 Senator. Here is a link if you would like to see a discussion on this theory. http://www.mybulova.com/node/3495

    Nice 1936 Senator. You can also see more about the first digit of case serial number to year of production coorelation in the recent NAWCC Bulletin article
    BULOVA: Finding Answers by Lisa Lawrence Andrew
    You must be an NAWCC member to follow the link above to the online article, or visit your local library. It's the first publication to cite the dating coorelation Bob mentions above. It also discusses both Lisa's website and MyBulova.com.

    Thanks for the tip about the case serial number. I had based my date solely on the movement. Also, thanks for the great website tip! Cheers!

    Hi Alfredo - yes, most models had names. There are quite a few of them since they have been made for a period approaching 100 years, so if you have pictures, I might help you ID them. I thought uou might like this with your love of things Deco, plus Bulova was an immigrant from Bohemia.
