Could this be the Carol "4 Ruby" variant? Image 26 of 36 - 1949 full ads?

That's what I was thinking- is it possible to get a closeup of the dial? It appears to be a more 'cartouche-y' kind of look. Are there additional stones for indices? Or just the rubies?

All the other markers have white stones, at the quater hour markers are rubies, i have a better photo of the dial but unsure how to post it.

 Good ad find jabs, I think you may be right, ad lists 8 brilliant white stones and 4 simulated rubies. Carol seems to be either/or white or red stones.  Lugs appear to be correct as well. A close-up photo would be a great help.

has any one any idea of a date on it, in the box folded up is a Bulova certificate with a jewellers signiture and the date of 1949, but the serial number on the document does not match the watch case number.
