Additional Information

Picked this one up mainly for the working movement with this dial.  This dial is advertised in the HE "G" but I think it looks rather nice in the "N" case as well.  Maybe a replacement or maybe you could pick which dial you wanted I don't know.  What do you think.  It is definitely the "N" case.  Thought it was worth putting in the DB for possible comparisons later.  

It is 14k pink gold filled.  Has a 48 date stamped movement and a 49 date stamped case.

Beautiful watch Kathy. It seems like we would tag it as Her Excellency noting a possible replacement dial?

Thank you Geoff.  Yes we could go with the case and do HE "N" or a generic HE.

Another nice one. I like the combo of face and dial.

1949 Her Excellency "N" noting probable face swap from a "G".

I guess I'm the wet towel of watch ID. If it's not an exact match to the ad I I would have to go without the variant.

1949 Her Excellency (leaving off the variant). As always, if the panel votes the variant I'd have to give the ID two (tentative) ticks.

With the Her Excellency line I would be inclined to go with the variant.  It seems like on this line they designated the variant by the case and case color regardless of which dial it had.  Like the "L" https://www.mybulova.com/watches/1949-her-excellency-9333 for example.

We do have this ad which shows this case and dial that I assumed was the "M" but it could have been an option for the "N" as well.
