1946 Bulova Arnold

10K yellow RGP case with decorative engravings from top to bottom lug on each side of bezel; stainless caseback; dial has gilt hands and markers and appears to be an older re-dial (tell-tale notch at the 3 position, and the seconds track includes numbers - not seen in the ads); 15-jewel 10BM movement; replacement leather band. The Roman numerals etched inside the case look to match the last three of the serial number 997 ( /Λ  /Λ  V// ) - guessing that is what was used for 9 instead of IX?

Hi all l have just acquired this watch and would like your assistance in identifying it . The stainless steel case has the Bulova , New York. and 10k rolled gold inscribed inside of the case. The case measures 30 mm excluding lugs by 26 mm excluding the crown. The crown is marked Bulova. I have looked through the collection on the site but l cannot seem to see one like it. 

Regards to all

My grandfather's wrist watch.  Has Bulova L0 on the back.

Inside on the movement:

Bulova Watch Co.    10bc   15 Jewels   Unadjusted   BXW-BAL

I took the watch to my local shop this year: Old Time Watch & Clock Shop where they cleaned and got it to run.  They sent the watch out to get the face cleaned.  My grandmother thought Gramps got the watch in the late 40's or early 50's.  It has a Speidel watch band on it.  It looks like the Arnold style.  I don't have a photo of the movement.  I may take it back to the shop to get them to open it up. 

Thank you for your input.

J9 marked 10BC movt, men's watch. The dial was refinished in 1970, so discrepancies with the original are there. I am leaning towards 'Arnold'.
