I'm thinking this might be a 1946 Officer:

Ad dated 1946

Should have a stainless back, like this one

I'd agree with 1946 Officer.

As far as finding a caseback for this, I would attned some NAWCC marts. You can look up local chapters on their website.

Oftentimes there will be sellers that have boxes and boxes of older watches like this, running, non-running, parts, etc. I have found many a Bulova case or movt and paid very little at these meets.

Case is different from the Aviator, and is a match to the Officer. Good work.
