Possible FS Item - Vintage Bulova Watch

I have a wristwatch in my collection that I have had for about three years now. It was purchased from an estate sale. My problem is that I have a number of vintage watches, and hardly wear any of them anymore. I am thinking of selling it, but do not know the demand.

This particular watch is a Bulova, Swiss-made. It has a stepped rectangular (Tank-style) case and a round movement. Because of this, I would expect this watch to be from the late 1920's to early 1930's, IMMSMC (when round movements were placed inside rectangular cases with steps, because the technology did not yet exist for an oval-shaped movement).

The exterior of the watch is in top condition, and the movement is very clean and keeps accurate time. The dial is silver, with a 60-second subdial at the 6 o' clock position, and the case is 14K GF (most likely, I do not think it is solid gold), with an interesting pattern. It has somewhat art-deco styling, and gold applique (I believe this is the term) numerals.

Would anyone here be interested in such a vintage watch? I will post pictures later.
