...the date is throwing me.
You know, it occurs to me that the patent date on your watch and the date in the thread where the watch was determined to be a Conqueror just might be the patent date for the case. Bulova used cases from the American Standard Case Company until they bought them out in the late 40's. AIR, ASCC cases were usually hallmarked with a shield or a globe, but not always.
The only way to be certain of the production date of the watch is likely by serial number of the movement or the case.- If the serial number on the case doesn't jibe with Bulova's documentation, try the movement number, if you haven't already. There are several different models that came out '26-'28 that are determined by production pre or post '28 and pre or post the Lone Eagle. The Trojan my Bulova thread has a lot of information in the discussion.
It is interesting that your watch and the watch in the My Bulova Conqueror thread have the same markings on the case. I suspect that your watch is the same as that one given the lack of the usual ASCC hallmarks. Perhaps the serial number on the case can determine the production date which could certainly differ from the patent date, but IDK if that information is available for their cases.
IDK - crazy period for Bulova - hope this may help.
