I believe the first digit of the Case seriel number to be a 6 or 8, possibly the 'CONSTANCE'

Ad Dated 1945 http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/bulova-ad-1945-1.jpg

 

edit: 'CONSTANCE' is advertised as 14k.

Need better images of the bezel.

The case seriel number  is a G or 6.

I think it is a G.  This one starts with an F and has the exact same back: http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1946-unknown-1467

Sean - will you please add a close up photo of the watch front, with the dial installed?

Yes the case is the important piece we need a good photo of to identify the watch.

Watch is a close match to the Claire case, but the dial is different.

Stephen, I'm not quite sold on the Claire either, I just don't think it is. Interesting in that it's roman, not a lot of roman dial Bulovas over the years.
