Access to the movement will be through the front of the watch. Check to see how the front bezel may come off, screw or snap?

I know there's no ad for such a beast (Beau "mystery")....but there's no ad for any "mystery" now, and it does have some of the charactoristics of the Beau w/ that dial.

Still no advert for 'Mystery Dial', maybe it is an attribute as opposed to a model?

I can't tell for sure if this watch is yellow or white gold...

Here is a 1963 ad: Beau Brummel AAAW (ref# 04743), this variant is for yellow gold. The $175 BBBW (ref#04744) could be the white gold version, but nothing confirming that.

I'm thinking it is a BB, with 'Mystery Dial' as per the above advert.

I don't know if the OP is still active, but I also see two colours in the pics. Any clarification, Jared?
