Alright so what do we do with this one?  Obviously we know the model.  This is a 1942'ish rose gold Alderman.

I'm assuming the original movement crapped out and was replaced by a very clean 1949 10BC.

So... is the watch a 1942 Alderman with replacement movement OR a 1949 Non-Conforming.

See... I think the label Non-Conforming degrades some of these watches that have replacement parts.  Who knows... Bulova could have replaced this movement under warranty itself.  Though I'm betting this was a watchmakers work.

The BULOVA "ALDERMAN," Circa 1941- 42? Rose (aka: Pink or Red gold. Which equates to a higher copper content, for tint coloring...) 14kt. rolled gold plate case. 25mm wide, excluding the crown x 37mm, lug to lug. Copper finished dial with black arabic numerals and sub second dial, at 6 o'clock. Cobalt blue hour, minute and second hands, on the Rose tinted ensemble... Most likely "1941" release, since it's listed in the 1942 BB glass crystal catalog? (Also see the last image below, for reference...) And the fifth image (Stamford, YGP) was cropped from a 12/40 Saturday Evening Post display ad...

 

BEST :-)  Scott
