Additional Information

Nice little late 1940's gents watch.  Looks to be of the His Excellency line.  Looks like a His Ex "UU" in the case.  Dial could be a transplant or who knows.  Dial is period though.

I could not find a case and dial combination in the ads.  it looks to be a "UU" case with a "PP" dial. Whether this was a factory combination i do not believe is documented.

Is there a case serial number on the inside. If not I'd date to 1949.

It's more than likely part of the the His Excellency series and quite possible another sub variant.

I'd be OK tagging as 1948(9) Bulova His Excellency but would not add a variant
