1945 Bulova Cadet "D" 

Inside case back reads: Bulova | 10K RGP Bezel | stainless back | New York

Yellow gold case/bezel with engraving surrounding the crystal. Dial has golden hands and 1 - 12 gilt numerals ( 1944 Cadet ad states black for both ). Sub-second hand surrounded by ten-second numbers.

Movement is a 15 Jewel 10BC with a Triangle symbol. 

Expansion band is 1/20 10KT GF Tops by Foster; looks similar to the band in the ad - possibly the original.

Another beauty Ken, nice work. I would say it's the correct band too, if not the original.

Just noticed that this record should be changed from 1944 to 1945
