Welcome to mybulova! Your watch looks to be a His Excellency,  like this one. The date code on the movement is a triangle (1945), which indicates the movement was replaced at some point. It's not that uncommon, like a much loved car having the motor replaced with another used one.

1950 His Excellency "SS", noting replaced movement.

Thanks for sharing it!

Thank you so much for the help pinpointing the exact model type and for pointing out it has a replaced movement!

Welcome to MyBulova.  1950 His Excellency with a replaced movement is a good match.  I guess you could call it a new OLD motor since the movement is an earlier model than the watch.  I think by 1950 the movement would have been a 7AP.  It is also interesting in that the movement has both a triangle and a circle date code.  Every so often we see a movement with two date codes.
