Nice one! This is one of those models that the name is determined by the date of production.

the result of previous discussions is:

1943 - Comptroller

1945/46 - Knickerbocker

1947 - Clinton

1948/49 - Chief

Based on model year and the serial number of the case starting with a 9  I am good with 1949 Bulova Chief.

The date range information posted by Bob above is the best we have to determine this case model, so 1948 Bulova Chief it is.
