Additional Information: 

This is a sentimental watch for me.  It was the very first vintage watch I ever bought.  $0.25 in a thrift store in RI.  It is a 1949 10KT Yellow Gold Filled Bulova.  Scalloped design in between arched lugs.  Flat dial with gold applied hour markers.  Most likely the His Excellency "YY".  Unfortunately the dial is toast.  My fault when cleaning it.  Young and stupid.
