This is a 14K white gold watch.  I think it is Gloria.  It is marked 14K GOLD BULOVA on the back and BOLOVA 14K GOLD NEW YORK on the inside of the case.  Very interesting lug design.  When I saw this in a 1948 ad I was hoping I could find one.  Seems to be running well.  Thanks.

Additional Information: 

Hello,

This watch was to my grand-mother of 95 years old who passed away two months ago.  I had the courage to open it to have more information!  I was affraid to break it!

I guess this is a watch from 1949 refering to the J9?  Could anyone confirm it?

I have checked all the pictures on the web site and internet, no luck to find one like mine.

The watch seems to be in Rose Gold.  We doubt the bracelet is the original.  

Thank you for all information we can receive about this souvenir.

Suzanne from Quebec, Canada.
