So I'm almost positive this is a Director model. Please correct me if wrong! One thing I'm confused about was that I thought Bulovas around this time were made in USA and not Swiss... I can get the watch open atm but it is a 10BT swiss movement. Any ads depcting the white gold model would be great. Finally the hour hand is missing, would this be an easy replacement to find?

It's a Director alright, it is white gold? If so it would be the "C" variant.

The replacement hand is readily available. Almost any watchmaker would have stock on one of them.

Director; depending on white or yellow gold confirmation, then we can assign a variant.

Looks like both the white and yellow gold versions were both known as Director 'A' according to this advert.

Text reads "WHITE GOLD. name same as above....." Advert states Director 'A'.
