Additional Information

Fairly certain that this is a 1942 as the styling seems to match better than the alternative (1932) with the "T" movement symbol.

I can't find an exact match for this watch anywhere.

This watch was located in a storage auction in Oregon several years ago.

Nice little auction find!  The late 1930s and early 1940s overlap a bit so I looked through the ads for both the 30s and 40s.  There are a couple that are close but nothing that matches the lugs exactly.  1942 Bulova Unknown for now.

Hi Livingston, welcome to myBulova. I agree that the watch is of the 1940 but I don't see any advert matches either.

Very cool little watch; I also agree it's a 1942. Like Kathy, I went through ads from 1935 to 1945 and find no match as of yet.

I'm afraid at this point, I am at Unknown as well.
