Wonderful conditon. Bulova President it is. Variant can depend on the strap/band type, but I believe the 'A' variant had the leather strap.

Very nice 1948 President 'A'.

An original expansion band could make it a 'D' variant, I think.

The watch, purchased 6 months ago, worked fine, but just stopped working. The seller said it was serviced in 2017.

Since I have never had the watch serviced I don't know where to take it.  Not sure if my local shop is the best place to take a vintage mechanical watch. I live in Colorado.  Any suggestions in the Denver area, or is it better to send it somewhere?
