Westfield, the forgotten Bulova sub brand.

Most have heard of Caravelle, Bulova's lower priced sub brand, but how many have heard of Westfield?
This brand first started life in name only in1917, and the first advertisement dates to 1920.
Westfield watches used a shock absorber system in their watches decades-from around 1928-before most companies, and at least twenty years before mainstream Bulova models.
I will link to two threads on two sites with the most information on the brand, Lisa's Watchophilia article, and a good friend of mine who started the very long thread on the NAWCC wristwatches message boards.
Watchophilia:

Hawk53's thread:

Some great examples are shown at both sites, but Hawk has the largest collection I know of, several hundred, and very rare models included.

Very nice.
When two opposite points of view are expressed with equal intensity, the truth does not necessarily lie exactly halfway between them. It is possible for one side to be simply wrong.
