Watch look like Treasurer from the forties (squere symbol mean 36 and 46 both)

but the dial is not typical for Treasurer (example)

Looks like a Treasurer case and a Princeton dial.  I wonder if this was an option?

Hello Dunkin03, welcome to myBulova. I wonder if this is a family heirloom? I agree that the dial isn't exactly the same as some of the "Treasure" models we have in the dB but I sure do vote to name it Treasurer, it's a real beauty. I am not concerned about the slight dial variation.

I'd agree with Treasurer, but with a possible dial swap.

Treasurer... dials could be chosen as an option or upsell during that period if I recall.

My first thought with a fully numbered dial was a early HE variant like the JJ except in rose, but I don't think so. I couldn't find  a corresponding HE in rose that would be the replacement for the Treasurer in rose. I will go along with Treasurer w/possible dial swap or mod.

Thank you all for your insights. 

Yes Mr. Baker this is a family heirloom but it holds little emotional attachment. The watch started working while I was taking the photos but then stop.

In your opinion is it worth getting it cleaned up and running properly?

Personally, I would fix it.

Fairly desirable watch for collectors = value greater or equal to service cost

Family heirloom to pass on to the next generation = priceless.
