Watch look like Treasurer from the forties (squere symbol mean 36 and 46 both)

but the dial is not typical for Treasurer (example)

Have updated the date to 1946.

Looks like a Treasurer case and a Princeton dial.  I wonder if this was an option?

Hello Dunkin03, welcome to myBulova. I wonder if this is a family heirloom? I agree that the dial isn't exactly the same as some of the "Treasure" models we have in the dB but I sure do vote to name it Treasurer, it's a real beauty. I am not concerned about the slight dial variation.

I'd agree with Treasurer, but with a possible dial swap.

Treasurer... dials could be chosen as an option or upsell during that period if I recall.

My first thought with a fully numbered dial was a early HE variant like the JJ except in rose, but I don't think so. I couldn't find  a corresponding HE in rose that would be the replacement for the Treasurer in rose. I will go along with Treasurer w/possible dial swap or mod.

Thank you all for your insights. 

Yes Mr. Baker this is a family heirloom but it holds little emotional attachment. The watch started working while I was taking the photos but then stop.

In your opinion is it worth getting it cleaned up and running properly?

Personally, I would fix it.

Fairly desirable watch for collectors = value greater or equal to service cost

Family heirloom to pass on to the next generation = priceless.
