So I got this watch awhile ago and it's being fixed up. The movement dates it to 1940 however scouring the 1940s ads I couldn't find this model in 1940. Is it possible someone had a newer movement put into an older case? Any info ot ads for this watch would be great! Btw I'm certain this is a President model!

Additional Information: 

Case is L6, movement L4

Dial has been refinished--was originally more of a gold-tone, I believe. It was terribly pitted when I bought this watch in 1995 or so, and I had it repainted. I don't know whether original had cross-hairs in sub-seconds dial.

Pierced-lug case design is indicative of a President model. Bracelet is not present, but evidence of earlier bracelet (tell-tale wear on inside of lugs) is ample.

1943 Bulova President - E

14K Rose Gold Filled case and caseback, s/n dates case to 1942; inside etched Roman numerals match last three case s/n 000; appears to be the original glass; copper dial with blue hands, notch at 6 indicates a possible re-dial; 7AP 21-jewel movement dated to 1943 ( X ); Kreisler matching gold band - 'E' variant in ads shows a different band, as seen in this 1941 example, but there are ads showing the band on this watch as well (no variant given) 1945; came with a display box that I can assume is original.

The 1945 ad shows this setup costing $65, whereas the earlier 'E' variant ads with the different band cost $57.50; the different band option and price could mean a different variant, or maybe not.

Additional Information: 

Date of manufacture is only an estimate, no date code on back, but the vintage watch dealer it came from believes it was from the 1940s.

Unknown model Bulova women's watch, 14K Pink Gold filled, original Pink Gold  filled early scissor expansion bracelet, original Cylinder Thick Glass crystal.  3 enameled hour numbers (3, 9, 12, and 8 what appear to be round crystal markers for 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11.  Rectangular second hand window at 6 o'clock position.  The case shape is actually what Cartier introduced and christened a "Tank" case in 1917, but nobody can legally use that trademarked term except Cartier.  So whatever model designation Bulova gave this watch, it wasn't "Tank".  Tear Drop lugs.  23mm wide by 38mm lug to lug.  Overall condition 90%.  If anyone knows just what model this watch is, please contact me.
