    Bulova rolled gold plate

    Question:
    Do any of you Bulova collectors have any old models, ladies or gents, that have the legend "rolled gold plate" stamped on the inside case back?
    I am looking at models between 1922-1930, and hopefully some may also have stamps saying things like "1/12 19K", signifying the fraction and carat content of gold to base metal.

    Thanks for your help (hopefully!)

    Bob.

    I have a 42' Leiutenant that says 14k rolled gold bezel Stainless back. And a 50' Photo Watch with 10k Rolled gold plate. Not the years you're looking for but info none the less, I'll bump you at least.

    Bob, at one point in time I had entered a lot of those into the master thread prior to the "big bang" on the site I believe you're referring to.

    I removed them all prior to the site getting "locked down".

    All my early stuff - 1926-1931 is either marked 14K Gold Filled in the case back, or GF between the lugs...RGP seems to appear later...

    I realize Bulova is your specialty, but are you looking for Bulova examples only? Also I have several ladies bands from that time that have unusual markings. See pix

    Thanks guys.
    Yes, only Bulova I'm afraid as that is my area of interest. There has been some claims that Bulova only started using RGP in 1928, then after I pointed out half a dozen ads from 1927 with RGP watches in, that went down a year.
    Then I found a couple of watches from 1924 with RGP stamped inside , one of which also said "1/12 19K" and so....
    Well, you get my drift.

    Here is a 1922 legislative report on taxation, and in the paragraph headed "GOLD FILLED" we see that RGP had to have the fraction of gold content of each item stamped on it. Which is why we see those fractions there.
    Just want to find more of these critters to get a handle on the date it started and stopped.
    All info is good info!
