Additional Information: 

I think this is the same Eleanor watch I posted a few days ago but a 1941.  It has a 14KGP case and back.  I purchased this one first and then found the 1942 one that was in better condition.  This one has a 14KGP back instead of stainless like the 1942 version and the crystal is flat instead of domed.  I thought I would post it even though the other one has been named in case the info from this one is useful to anyone.  Thanks.

Wow - you're really starting quite a Bulova collection, it looks like you're hooked. BTW - it's OK to add every Bulova watch you own, don't worry about duplicates.

PS - 1941 Bulova Eleanor

Thanks, I was wondering if it was ok to add a duplicate or not.  Yes pretty much hooked all right : )

We call it Bulovitis, so far it's proven to be nearly incurable. There are some models that we have over a hundred different examples of in the dB. Bulova made the "President' model for 50-60 years, I bet we have 150-75 of them shown.

1941 Bulova Eleanor and a nice one. Welcome to the obsessive compulsion :o)

Collecting Bulovas is like eating potato chips, you can't have just one. We all understand and fully support you.....you are not alone.
