1968 Ladies Bulova Diadem "J"

I purchased this lovely watch last year, and confirmed model recently.  Not sure if it is self winding or not.  Does anyone own this watch or have additional info?

Hi VG2004, welcome to myBulova. I'm not too familiar with the Diadem model, I see we have one in our database from 1973 and it is a manual wind movement. Is it possible to get a couple photos of your watch? We'd love to have it added to our database. Bulova was making ladies watches during this period with automatic movements so it's possible your's is auto winding.

Hello Mr. Baker, I have attached a few pictures and an old ad from Oswego ValleyNews dated May 2, 1968.  Case is marked 14K Bulova with serial no. 630873.  I appreciate any feedback you are able to offer.

Nothing. No pics, or ads.

No pics coming up, anyone?

I have found two ads on this site for the Diadem, the 1968 "H" and the 1970 "DS".

Also found one Diadem ad on Watchophilia for a different unnamed variant from 1972.

OK -team I added the photos Vaughn sent me.

Vaughn I also ask that you add this beauty to the data base. Also wondering if you know the date of the advert you found.

Ad dated Thursday, May 2, 1968.  I will also add my watch to the database.  Hopefully no problems posting pics:-). Thanks for your help.
