Great Picture and great family heirloom.  Greeneyes52- can we get a few more pictures- like the inside and outside of the case back, and movement- if possible?  You noted the movemnt model was a 5AR, so I'm guessing you had it opened up at some time.  Please and thanks.

I put another picture of the insides up, the best I could get the shot.

I find this watch as "Her Bulova" in a 1967 ad - duh, of COURSE it's hers!

That's the one, Geoff! Shame there's no name....

That ad is the closest one I have seen, the only difference is the band itself.  Used my trusty magnify glass and the band is a Speidel band.

"Her Bulova", I don't think that's an ID. Great ad showing the subject watch and though the band has probably been changed over the years, that's no big deal.

Closest yet- "Her Bulova"- assuming that's the model name.  The ad states "white gold".  Can't tell if greeneyes watch has the faceted crystal-  but that's minor.
I'm good with Her Bulova, and would give two ticks.  
I can't imagine Bulova would name this something different if the ad stated "Yellow and White Gold".... or even "Yellow Gold".  Everything else appears to be a match.

It's not the name, guys.
None of the watches in that ad have been named.
