Rose Gold Swing Lugs has 8AH movement with 17 jewels. Movement has a cross or plus sign stamped. Looks like a 1943 Conrad to me.
Nice one. Can you confirm the case serial number? If it starts with a "6", it's a 1946. The movement is clearly marked with an "x", which is 1943. It is indeed a Conrad, noting possible movement replacement.
Bulova Conrad, awaiting s/n confirmation to assign year.

As a collector, I am a big fan of personalized watches and would reinstall the original back that is s/n dated 1944 and a match for the 1943 movement. It was not uncommon for a year difference between the two dates.
We have to identify and date watches based on how they are presented. With the 1946 back as it is now, it's a 1946 with a non-matching movement date. With the personalized back, it's original and a 1944.
