Yes, It is Spencer. Although I said of 1941, it is wrong because the case is of 1942.

Thanks.

by the serial number of case it would be the year 1942, but the movement has a production marking 1947

We wait for the opinion of other panel members

With watches that have a movement and case date code that are more than 2 years apart we determine these to be non-conforming watches.

The watch model (case and dial) is fundamentally a 1942 Bulova Spencer, but in this watch the date gap is too great to confirm it as a complete and accurate Spencer.

This is were it can be tricky to ID. If there is no other model like this then we could simply ID as a Bulova Spencer, noting that it has a later replacement movement and hands.

Sorry.

I have the original movement but it had not the hairspring and it was impossible to make run the watch correctly although I used another hairspring. I can put a picture of the original movement or you can delete de entry. No problem.

Swap the barrel bridge from the original movement onto the one in the watch PedroA and you've got an original as far as anyone can tell.

That would work. Pedro please send me an updated photo of the movement so that I can replace the current one in the listing.
