Thanks for the warm welcome to this collector's site and for your expert opinions on my 1949 Minute Man watch. (The fancy black script on the face had me fooled.) This is a little treasure from the year my parents were married, so it means a lot to me.

Welcome to myBulova.  What a wonderful treasure for you to remember the year your parents were married, very special.

Here is an ad from 1949 indicating the variant for your watch is "B" in pink gold.  Not the clearest ad but I think everyone agrees it is a Minute Man so the ad is just to verify the variant.

Well done, Kathy. 1949 Minute Man "B" it is.

A point of interest - $49.50 in 1949 is equivalent in purchasing power to $522.26 in 2019.
