Hello,  This is a 1942 based on the 10LB movement which I think may have only been used in 1942 and the T date symbol.  It has a 10KGP bezel, sterling base and stainless back.  This is a differenct case than I am used to on the ladies watches of this time period so I will have to figure out how to get the dial out later to take a photo of it.  Looks like an original band from the time but it is in bad shape so I will put a leather one on it and it needs a good cleaning.  It is a 14mm band width and 34mm lug to lug and 27mm without the crown across.  The Commander from a 1940 ad is the closest model I can find with what looks like the same case, numbers, hands.  The Apollo from a 1947 ad is pretty close as well but has different numbers.  Looking forward to hearing what you all think it might be.  Thanks, Kathy

Case shape:

Additional Information: 

A nice 30J 1969 Bulova Commander. Runs well, keeps good time. Not original band. Dial is in nice shape, perhaps showing a light patina next to the 4 o'clock mark. Winds and sets smoothly. The hands still glow in the dark well. The circular machining on the center of the dial looks good (hard to see in the pic) There is a small flaw on the side of the bezel about 9 oclock, but it can't be seen while being worn. (almost looks like it was melted with electricity.) Aside from that, the case and crystal are in very nice shape. The back has some scratches, but nothing serious.

Additional Information: 

30J self winding movement dated M5 as is the front load case. Pie Pan dial is silver in color with gold ring. Indices thicker at outer end to compensate for the pie pan effect that drops away from the ring to the edge. Decal on face of a Compact brand vacuum cleaner. Watch was most likely a service award. Back not personalized. I find nothing in the DB; my gut feeling is that it's an undocumented Commander based on dial and movement.
