Wow, that's a fine looking watch Aaron, I'm a big fan of anything in rose gold but solid rose is just about the best. Any late 40's rectangle case holding a 21 jewel movement wants to be an His Excellency but I just can't find a match.

For now, Unknown.

See My Watches, I have an earlier one, probably 1942, but not absolutely certain of exact year yet, unfortunately only 14K Pink Gold (there does seem to be some slight difference between Rose and Pink, at least some manufacturers use them as being different) Filled, not solid gold. But just as pretty.

Any chance of a photo of the watch in full. It's a little tricky to see the watch as a whole.

Gorgeous piece....Thinking it's a Bulova President model.

From what I can see, it looks like the pink version of the President in that ad.

Yes, it's a pink gold President.  No doubt.

Thanks for the new photo. Yep I'm comfortable going with a 1948 Bulova President as in the above advert.

Yeah, I think it's a President too. What a beautiful watch, I love rose gold, it reminds me of my grandfather's watch.
