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.

Another stunning example. Are you going to let some of your friends ride in your time machine one of these days, Ken?

President it is, and a cleaner example I have never seen.

Thanks for the comments - this one I found online, and it looked nothing like the final restored condition. Hidden by years of patina and grime, and it had such a nice dial that needed nothing done. These are the only before photos I have:

Ditto Rev Rob. I'm ready for that wonderful ride back in time and hope to bring back a box full of wonderful Bulovas.
