Can't make out movement caliber. Looks like a 6 size.  Can see SWISS and looks like BXW Swiss to USA import code, but not on balance cock. Also looks like L3 on movement.

There are 43 "unique" Goddess of Time Variants listed on the official Bulova model/price list provided by Bruce Shawkey/Lisa along with the Bulova Mat Ads.   Our watch DB shows 21 "unique" Goddess of Time variants.  Not sure how many Goddess of Time variants we have ads for, or the timespan of this series, but there's a pretty good chance that the mount may determine the variant designation.

To me the subject watch looks like it is White Gold...and the "F" looks 2-tone in the ads.

rolka7510, can you confirm that this watch is solid White Gold, Solid Yellow Gold , or a White & Yellow 2-tone?

Thank you all for your help about my watch.
It is only silver tone and cant confirm if its white gold for now.
And as soon as possible i'll add more pictures to show you the bracelet

Thank You!

That will help a lot, if it is not stamped on the back of the case 14K, it is more than likely 10 or 14K RGP (rolled Gold plate) and would probably say that on the inside of the case back.

That will make the ID lean towards a  general Goddes of Time with out the "F" variant designation.

Ok so there is absolutely nothing inside to let me know if its plated gold...

Thanks rolka7510.  Could you confirm the movement model listing.  I can't quite make out the movement caliber (movement model) in your movement pictures. Looks like it starts with a 6 and I don't know how you came up with the current 089 entered as it is now listed.

I think it could be an upside down 6BO or 6BD.
