Have you had a look through the vintage ad section under 1947?

Yes checked 1945-50 ads

I believe this is an Evelyn.  The 5AB was around for quite some time so this is probably a replacement movement.  Gorgeous watch!  This ad is marked from 1939.

Well done Kathy. I agree, it's an Evelyn with a potential  replacement movement. Based on the case s/n starting with an "8", it's likely a 1938 or 1948. Ad is dated 1939 and case s/n ceased being a date indicator basically in 1947, so.....

Bulova Evelyn - 1938?

or should we go by movement date and leave it as 1947?
