Additional Information

Movement symbol on the inside is "49". On the outside of the case (back) "0" or the letter "o" or circles (2, one on each side) flank the "14k" mark.

I had so much difficulty trying to find a similar watch I thought I'd share it here if it'll help others. From the info I gathered on your site I was able to determine (I think) that the movement date is 1949. I looked through the ads here for '49 and a bit after and didn't find this watch. However, it looks a lot like the watch a member here has photographed along with, I believe it was.. The mens Ambassador from 1935.

I'd already listed for sale elsewhere, I'm just here to add this in case you don't have the model. It may simply be that I didn't search well enough.

Welcome to mybulova!  What a lovely watch, thank you for adding it to our database.  Can you confirm how many diamonds it has?  I think it might be the Anita pictured here in a 1949 ad.

Yes! That's it! It has 8 diamonds. Noon and six o' clock are larger than the 3 on each side. The one at noon has a nice blue-green flourescence. Nice work!

Anita seems to look correct. It's a shame we don't have a better image, but I'm good to ID it as a 1949 Bulova Anita for now.
