Additional Information: 

This watch is 14k rose gold plated with a stainless steel back. It has an 8AH, 17 jewel movement stamped 48 although the data base here only shows 1945 for this movement. I removed the crystal for the front photo because the crystal has considerable scratching at the present time.  The plating with the signature appears to have come off the crown. It looks like the Spencer in the 1947 ads on here to me with the exception of the hour and minute hands. ....................................................................................................................................................

Case SN gives us 1945, but mvmnt. has 49, giving 1949. Original band with "1/20 12K TOP" and "(R)" stamped on the inside. Only one correct hand, the minute hand, zero case wear and very minimal band wear.  "SPENCER".http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/Bulova_AD_1946_4.jpg Light wear to numbers, but dial is good. So, how do you date a watch with a replaced movement?

  Well unlike the same dial in a Senator case... this is in fact the picture!

Is this the real Spencer then folks?

It looks quite a bit different than the other 1945 Spencer of Marks in our database.  This is more of a curved President type case rather than the Senator type case.

Notice the protective cover metal flap on the bottom.  This is my second watch to have that... the other is that mint Senator I have.

Found as is.... just a little brasso and a polishing cloth got it looking like that.
