I would see this watch in the model series Diamond Romance, Candlelight or maybe La Petite

in all these model series we can find watches with similar parameters, but I did not find matching advert

Unknown for now

Gorgeous watch and one I'm sure I've seen it in an advert before. Looking now.

Hello Mommyof3, welcome to myBulova, your watch is wonderful!. I think heirloom watches are simply the best and you're very fortunate to have this one. I hope one of your children is a daughter to whom you can leave it one day.

I've looked through of the adverts we have from both the 1960's and 1970's. I see many watches that to Jaroslav's point are a very close to match your's  but none quite the same. I wish I could say exactly which model it is but I can't. For now I will have to agree  that it's 'Unknown' to me.

Thank you for sharing it, it really is lovely.

Thank you so much for all your comments and help and I'm very blessed to have been able to have this beautiful watch. I have pictures of the movement and other aspects and as soon as I can get the file size down I will post them as well

I've added the photos to this watch record and deleted the second one. They do confirm the date (1971)

Thank you I couldn't figure out how to add them. I am surprised at the date I was thinking around the 50 to 60's but that confirms that my dads father did indeed purchase it for my grandmother

Also I have looked high and low and have never found an exact match to this watch. Is there a possibility that it was custom or one of a kind

Bulova didn't really do one-off watches and there are a good many number of models produced by Bulova that we are still unaware. We sometimes strike it lucky by finding an old newspaper advert, but many watches (especially these highend models) didn't make it into the numerous official Bulova adverts.

Oh okay that makes sense we live in tennessee so I aasume that's were it was purchased and I've been trying look through some of my grannies old papers and stuff hoping, I will maybe find a receipt.
