This is a 1949 Bulova with a very nice copper dial with applied gold hour markers.   The case is not marked but inside case back says it is 10KT Rolled Gold Plate.  It measures 39mm x 21mm.  Case back is marked Bulova A9 with serial number #2429206.  It is not running and is missing a stem and crown.  Really great case and dial.

Yes, this one's a Senator, I wonder which state he represents?

Would you consider the case 'Rose' gold? This colour dial usually accompanies a Rose Gold case which would make it the Bulova Senator 'F'. The 'F" variant whilst listed a 'Red' might be due to the accompanying metal expansion band.

Makes sense to me. Rose is a shade of red. I'll go with "F" variant.

 I can confirm it is yellow gold .   I put it next to a rose gold one and is definitely yellow
