Additional Information: 

The Unknown.... I have two of this exact same watch, both in the same color.  No pic of the movement as I can't get the danged stem out and I'm pretty sure if I torque on it I'll snap something.  Sausage fingers and fine delicate movements are not synonymous.

Of the three examples I've seen out there, they are all from 1943.  The  know movement on another example is as above and I'm good with it as whats in this one.  Take it for what it's worth but the case matches as well.

Wow - this is a cool watch plains. Very unusual dial on it, I like it a lot. I think I agree on Unknown but am wondering how you dated it, I don't see a code on the back?

Case serial number beginning with '3' is probably why Plains has dated it 1943.

I agree a very classy Bulova for the period and not yet seen in a advert as yet.

Yeah... from the 3... both my cases have that.  And the only other one I've seen, Lisa has, and she was able to get it apart and confirm with a date stamped movement.
