Additional Information: 

 Anyone ever seen one of these before? Based on this ad, it would appear to be a 1949 (case and movement) His Excellency "XX" white gold plate variant sporting yellow gold gilt numerals and hands. Signed 4 times.

http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/bulova-ad-1949-1...

Ad makes no mention of face color choice (black vs. silvered), so is this an XX standard configuration for the variant "V54R 1005 White", or something else? Watch is pretty good physical condition but a non-runner. Appears to have a bad balance staff or related jewel. Mounted on a crispy leather band as found.

Additional Information: 

1947 His Excellency "DD" in literally spotless condition on what could possibly be the original leather band. If band isn't factory original, it is proper period and worn a couple times at the most. Caseback has an unusual engraving on it that looks like a snail shell and 2 leaves. Appears this watch was a treasured gift that was kept in a drawer and only admired instead of being worn.

Crystal Details: 
High dome center, I think it's lucite
Additional Information: 

 It's a His Excellency and only close ad in the database that I could find is HE WW, but that shows with black numbers and hands, a SS back and leather band. This one has a gold plated back , gold markers and hands and a Kreisler GP band.

Just got this one at a garage sale, daughter of original owner handed it to me from her dresser drawer. She said she remembered her Dad (passed about 15 yrs ago) getting it as a Christmas present and to the best of her memory, it has always been on the band as seen; and the box is original to the watch.

No plating wear to case, very light wear to band clasp high points. Face is almost perfect with a few tiny "pimples" under magnification. Crystal matches ad and appears to me to be lucite. It's not acrylic and certainly not glass. It's a lot harder than acrylic, but the few scratches on it are slowly polishing out with acrylic polishing compound and cotton ball. I believe this to be all original and never serviced. I coaxed the balance and it ran accurate for a full wind (as received wound tight), so all I can see is it needs a service.

Additional Information: 

I have had this watch for several years but do not remember how it happened that I have it.  It appears to be in very good condition.  It is 10K gold filled both yellow and rose gold but mainily yellow.  It works, I have had it runing for 2 days now and the time is right on time.  I did get the back off one time but did not record the movement serial number and now I can't get the movement to seperate from the back.  The band seems to be the original band and my research on this site led me to think that it could be a Statesman but there are soo many varieties of dials that I am not sure.Can anyone ID it for me?
