Yep, nice banker and if that is the dial that came with it, pretty sweet.

Looks like confirmed Banker to me. 

I went through a checklist. Ben Hur  - diff jewel count, slightly more rounded bezel.  Chief- nope, engraved and occurs a couple years later I think.  Ranger - diff jewel count, engraved, but Plains example here shows similarity in crystal shape. http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1940-ranger-718  Ranger a little less rounded bezel shape than subject.  While these are "different" watches, they are similar in case shape/design.  By checking these watches, it' gets me familiar w/ these traits and lets me rule out other possibilities.

I updated the correction on the mis-entered case SN.  Only changed the first digit of case SN from 4 to 9 based on pics.  It was probably just a typo.
