Any help with the Name/Style of my Bulova?

I've been researching my grandfather's tank Bulova that was given to me when my father died and I have not had as much success as I would have hoped. The case does not have any alpha-numeric-numbering which means it's pre-1949? The watch case and the Kreisler band are both 14k solid. The movement has a square stamped on it which according to the chart on this website puts it at either 1927 or 1936. '36 seems more likely given the timeline/history I was told from my mother.

It looks somewhat similar to a 'Statesman' style watch but not exactly. I've only managed to find 3 identical watches to this on the internet and no one had any more information than what I have been able to find myself.

Please view my Bulova and let me know if you can help me better identify it:

Matthew this has been identified as a 1946 Tuxedo.  Can anyone concur?

Thank you Stephen for the fantastic vintage advertisement image. I will investigate when the Tuxedo was introduced and see what I can find.
