A good example of I think a rarer all white gold Gladiator.

At some point someone thought it a good idea to put some sort of clearcoat or lacquer on the dial which has since cracked and looks terrible! 😄

Looks like a white gold Gladiator indeed. Never seen it before.

Very nice, even with the custom dial and  hands. This is a new one for me; it certainly looks like an all white Gladiator.

I agree on a 1930 Bulova Gladiator.   It is interesting  both models we now have in the DB have the same dial while the ad has the 12/1/7/5 indented as opposed to box corners.  Makes me think Bulova changed the dial on this one to remove the indented markers at some point.  Stylistically it makes more sense to have them vertical and in line.    Also I find it interesting the ad says it is on a flexible bracelet. That seems really early for a flex bracelet.
