Babci's rose-gold 14K gold filled.  Guessing this is a Goddess of Time, not sure which variant though B?....could use some help dating it as well.  In working order.

Welcome to mybulova!  This is a pretty watch and looks like it is in nice condition.  If you would like help loading more photos I would be happy to assist you in that.  You can message them to me and I will add them.

I agree with 1941 Bulova Goddess Of Time "R".

Thanks VERY much for the ID on the model name!  I did see that one and thought it was a good match.  Here is the inside case picture.  I am curious as what all the different numbers mean, if you look closely, there are 3 sets of letters and numbers.  2 at the top and one sideways at the bottom?

Numbers and code inscribed in the casebacks of watches are watchmaker's marks, and they follow no set format. Each watchmaker has their own identifying system, even if you are working in a depot. Basically, each set of marks identifies a repair, or possibly a full service. The marks mean that someone has taken care of the watch, hopefully!

Mechanical watches should be fully serviced every 4-6 years, but it is rare that I see the proper number of service marks.

The ad above looks to reference a yellow gold version for the 'R' variant. Subject watch is rose gold color, and likely a different variant.

I will agree with the point Ken made and go with 

1941 Goddess of Time - no variant, as there is one watch in the database ID'ed as an "R" that is yellow gold. This one probably is a different letter variant.
