I think it is 1945 "AVIATOR" like this one http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1946-aviator-6443

Welcome louman55 to myBulova, nice old Bulova you have. I think the date sould be corrected to 1945 as the triangle was used for two different years and this style is indicative of the 1940's.

I agree with jabs and bob, it's a 1945 Aviator.

I'd go two ticks tentative for 1945 Aviator.  1935 date is too early.  Still no ad clearly showing an engraved model, but as with other model series of this era, there is probably both engraved and plain bezel/case.  That's why two ticks for now.

Tentative 45 Aviator also, no variant, style of numbers is different from the ads, as are the markings around the sub-second hand area.

45 Aviator gets my vote, maybe the dial has been swapped? Could easily be a variant. two ticks for now..
