Looks like a 1940 Miss America "A"

Glad to hear speculations on origin of this piece. It was a 50th anniversary gift to my great aunt.

That advertisement is amazingly close! The dial numerals vary also but for sure could be part of Miss America collection style.

Hello wmc533, welcome to myBulova, I like your watch very much. I'm a fan of heirloom watches - especially Bulova. I think you are most fortunate to have this keepsake.

I agree that the case is similar but I don't think it is a Miss America for the resaons Jaroslav points out above. That I know, the Miss America watches were not available in solid gold.

Not having found a advert match I would have to ID this beauty as Unknown. Thanks for sharing it.

Oh, one more thing, the date of this watch should be changed to 1940. The omega code does represent two different years, the style of this watch case is clearly 1940's era.
