Additional Information: 

I think this is a 1960 ladies Bulova. The movement has M0 stamped on it. The case is 14k white gold and has 12 small diamonds. It looks like the La Petite in a color 1960 ad on here that the model is holding beside her head to me. The ad is too big for me to put it here. What do you guys think?

Nice.  If you wanna send me the ad file, I can make it fit the size/dimension requirements to post on site. My outside email is William Randy Smith at gmail dot com -without spaces and using the @ for at, and "." for dot.  You may be saying the ad is already on site, and its too big to place in this thread.  Maybe you can place a link to the ad if thats the case (and no need to send to me).

I think this is a fantastic watch!  Really nice and ornate.

The ad I'm referring to is already on site. Look at the 23rd ad from 1960 Mr. Smith. I think it's the one beside the ladies head.

Stunning,makes me wonder why ladies watches are not more collectable.

I collect them. But nobody ever accused me of being normal.

I also have a few Ladie's watches.Lately I've been trying to get my hands on some from the Rhapsody series but only with the original bracelets which in my opinion makes these watches look so good.

beautiful watch, I would say that it belongs to a series of La Petite, what bothers me is the difference in the number of jewels, dial sign 23, while movement 21

OOPs! I listed the jewel count wrong. I edited it. Thanks for pointing that out.
