Welcome to myBulova and thank you for sharing your watch with us.  You are correct that this watch is a Rona.  However, it is from 1942 based on the case serial number, I have updated the date for you.  I am attaching an ad from 1944 giving the rose gold model the variant "B".  Lovely watch.

On your movement I believe the date code is located by the word SWISS.  It looks like it might be a 1941 code which would be in line with a 1942 case.  Here is the date code page https://mybulova.com/bulova-date-codes

I'm seeing what I think is also an asterisk date stamp on the movement.

1942 Bulova Rona "B" is a nice match.
