I inherited this watch from my Grandmother. 
Not sure if I put the right year or not, but it looks very similar to 'Goddess of Time' 1947.

Hello Emily, welcome to myBulova. I think you are most fortunate to have this wonderful little heirloom from you grandmother, I hope you treasure it. We strongly recommend a regular clean, oil and adjustment service for vintage watches if you plan to wear them. I think you're right about the ID, I agree that it's the "Goddess of Time" as illustrated in the advert I linked below (item "J"). By the way the running woman in the Bulova logo at the top of this page was also called the "Goddess of Time". The small square on the movement indicates the year 1946 production. Additionally we use the first digit of the serial number prior to 1948 is date the case. For your watch we would also say 1946.

I would agree with Goddess of Time. It may be the 'L' variant based on this 1941 ad. The same case style can be seen throughout the 40s, in both the engraved style or the plain bezel, and in rose and yellow; and also with a variety of bands. The current band is not original to the watch.
