Bulova 1940 Senator

Case Serial No.:

Case shape: 
Tonneau
Gender: 
Men's
Additional Information: 

This Senator sports is one of those rare double stamped movements.  It shows Omega and Asterick for 1940-41.

The natural gold color case is in excellent shape.  The salmon/rose colored dial is in poor shape and will need a redail.  I have a Senator with this dial but a rose gold case so I'm wondering if this case isn't a replacement ?  The contrast is a bit different after seeing the one I have but not wholely unpleasent.  Though with a redial needed anyway this could in fact be a good candidate to make it match up a little better.
