Additional Information: 

This appears to be a 1941 Lieutenant based on the following previous watch.  http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1941-lieutenant-3483

This is a yellow gold watch with a 10AX movement with the asterick date code.   The dial is a silver champagne color with gold applied hour numbers.  It appears the same as the above watch and others listed as a Lieutenant but the sub second register has no second numbers.   Interestingly the watch is engraved on the back Michael Salay.  I did find a Michael Salay who was a race care driver and this could have been a prize he won for winning a race.   The watch is not currently running.
