I love these watches.  Sadly this one is an Unknown without an ad to support it.  Like this one https://www.mybulova.com/watches/1946-unknown-5678?page=2 It could be a variant of the Practitioner but we haven't found an ad for it yet.  Like the American Nurse had both versions.  

Unknown for now

Maybe watertite
I say on in here that had a lot of questions surrounding it, it was a 1945 watertite.

Well yes you are right.  Like this one https://www.mybulova.com/watches/1945-watertite-10291 I am not sure what the differences are between the Unknown and the Watertite.  Probably the sealing and back.

That's like it. I have the 49 in the same size. It is dated on the inside.
I also have other 49s but different in sizes and screw backs
