Additional Information

I believe this is a 1940 Stamford, but it has a few slight differences compared to the two already on the site. Crystal is not raised, there is an extra "Bulova" stamp on the back cover, the sweeping second hand at the 12 and 6 position is a triangle, crown is flat instead of slightly domed.

After looking at the Stamford, Officer and Baldwin I think the Bladwin seem like the best match.  Nice ad find Ken.

1946, you mean?

Ok so the Officer is listed as 15 jewels and the Baldwin as 17 jewels. I'm leaning towards the Baldwin, but would be good to get a confirmation of the movement jewel count.

With the advert matching the dial, I'd say this is a very good cosmetic condition example of a

1946 Baldwin.

Sorry for the delay, just got back and took off the back of the watch. The movement is marked with a Square symbol, and indeed is 17 Jewels. 

Looks like a 1946 Baldwin to me! Thanks everyone!
