Additional Information: 

1947 (movement dated) Bulova unknown, 21J 10AK movement with a '47 date stamp, 10K White Gold filled bezel and case with no date stamp, Charcoal dial with Silver applied numbers & Silver hands, Kreisler Quality .025 Gold content mesh butterfly clasp band.

I am unsure what this is, a Excellency would be my first guess, but Princeton also comes to mind...It could have the dial refinished, and if I would have had a set of hands, I would have replaced them.

Is it a model, or is it a Non-conforming?

Based on panel member comments on recent Watch entries into the database the Case Colour will attribute to the variant on the "HIS EXCELLENCY" Series of Watches, but not on the "HER EXCELLENCY" Series of the same era.

interesting
