Bulova Round Dial Wire lug Nurse's 15j Tonneau with Red Sweep Seconds, Near Mint Condition, c.1930
 

Ladies watches between the wars rarely had seconds hands and models like this with a highly visible red center sweep seconds were popular with nurses for measuring pulse rate though many other women found them useful as well. This little beauty from the depression years is in an immaculate art deco case with no scratches or damage. 17mm x 30mm. The unusual factory original round dial is aged to a light honey tone and is clean and very readable. Inside is a high quality 15 jewel Bulova movement where most ladies watches of the day had the much cheaper 7 jewels or less movements. Runs, winds and sets properly and keeps good time. Original fancy crown and original glass crystal. All factory original in near mint condition inside and out. Fitted with a black cord bracelet but we will fit a leather strap if desired.
