President B.  Nice watch and the dial can be restored for about 35.00 at International Dial.

I'm good with 1940 President "B".  
I gotta go look for the date of this ad below, but it's used in another 1940 President "B" watch record.

Plains has another 1941 example here.  I'm checking on the date of the ad (below)he uses in his ID.

Thats who did my redial. Through Jeff Shimp. You have to remove dial from movement before you send it to them also. Took about 3 weels to get the dial back.

Hi jim

Unfortunatly im no watchmaker , although l collect vintage watches and have omega, rollex watches, l have recently started collecting old bulova's mainly because of the variety of different designs they have produced ver the years. There s no way that l would atempt to remove the dial . If this company wont remove the dial to complete the refurbishment is there any other company you could recommend that would do the work for me as l have two more watches which l would like to have this work done.
