Here is a great advert showing your watch. A nice example of a 1941 Bulova Watertite.

From the adverts on site it looks like only the 1941 version had 'WATERTITE' on the dial, but I could be wrong.

What about the fact that the numbers and the names BULOVA and WATERTITE are applied gold(raised) unlike all the other WATERTITES in both the ad and the examples in the database seem to be painted?

I did notice that, which again I think adds to the uniqueness of the watch.
