Accuquartz was generic. The Accuquartz Digital referred to the particular model in question.

Although I'm now thinking that the subject watch is a Bulova Quartz Digital with LED as the variant.

The subject watch is the one in the advert, and is an Accuquartz.

Accuquartz is the movement type not the model I believe. See advert above.

Both watches shown in this advert (totally different styles) are from the Accuquartz series, so we can't simply name the subject watch Accuquartz unless we are being totally generic.

Incorrect, the ad you posted gives the model names.

"Accuquartz "B", "C" and "F".

We have an ad containing the subject, and it is called an Accuquartz in the Bulova generated ad, and the handbook too!

Both my advert and your advert show the different models available under the Accuquartz banner.

We can simply give it is generic grouping like we do for Accutrons but  I feel we can narrow it down further similar to what we've done again with the Accutrons.

   This ad you used is from 1977, and none of the models in it are Accuquartz models.

 

The subject is a 1974 model.

Subject movement is a 2281.  Does that help someone?  I'm thinking Accuquartz with unknown variant.
