This is more likely to be 1946. I'll have a look to see what I can find. Beautiful watch...beautiful pictures!

Statesman is a match except for the dial colour.

Bulova advert.

If a 1946 would not the Movement have a '46 mark on it? The symbol is a "square". Is not that 1936? I don't know how to date the case.  Statesman 21j comes closest with the mesh band. Thanks for the ad... JEV

That rose color gives it away. I have not seen a director that was not rose gold. 

Director from me.

"I thought is was a Director too but that Statesman Ad with the mesh bracelet looks closer." Yes, my watch is 14k GF Rose Gold with GF Rose Band. Best, JEV

A bracelet a watch does not make. Director.

The square was also used in 46.

        STATESMAN "B". 1947 ad.

I know the ad says "10K gold filled", but for some reason red gold cases are usually 14K, if you look at the Spencer and Bruce, they are 14K red or 10K yellow. May go some way to explaining the difference in your 1943 Director's thread.

   Easy to find in the ad DB!   :^D

Yep... before I saw Bobbee's adpost in the bottom I was going to say 1946 Statemen.  I've had several of these... always very "Stately!" haha... the box looks correct for the time period... same box was used in the His Excellency line of the late 40's.  I think the Statesmen may have been part of that His Excellency "Group" they called it.

Statesmen "B" - Red
