Hello,  I picked up this watch because I love the original band.  It has a 10K rolled gold plate bezel and stainless back.  I love the patina on the dial.  I think it is the Senator "D".  This is my first mens watch of this style and I really love it.  Let me know what you think : )

What a beauty, good for you! The original band is harder to find than the watch, and what designates the variant letter!

I will agree with 1941 Bulova Senator "D"

Thank you!  I really love the band.  I was able to pick up a Senator box that I should get tomorrow.

Excellent example with original band!

1941 Bulova Senator 'D'.

Men's watches from this period are much smaller than today, and in my shop I sell quite a few of these to women who wear them. My sister wears a 1957 Ambassador 'G'.

Thank you!  Yes it is about the same size as a couple of my modern ladies watches so I can understand why women would buy them in your shop.  If I had seen them in person sooner I would have purchased one before now : )

Got the box for it today.  Not sure if this is the exact box for 1941 but it is close enough for me : )
