Nice watch! This one appears to me to be part of the Regatta Series. Bears a striking resemblance to the "C" in this 1963 ad snippet from full page ad section of Db.

At this point, I say 1964 Bulova Regatta 23 "C"

If everyone agrees, this is a first for the database

Thankyou. I couldn't find anything that matched it it the vintage catalogue but at least I now have a model type.

Hi Roy - can you confirm that your watch is an all stainless steel case?

Hi Geoff. It does say it has a stainless steel case.

These sometimes came with a dark grey dial, and I can't tell if that is the color of this one or an aged white. It looks to be the Regatta 23 'C', but not if the dial is grey, not sure a variant for that color.

Hi Andersok.  Looking at the watch face the perihpery has a darker grey coloured ring with a thin chrome ring on the inside of that. It doesn't look white to me.

Thank you, I think that since the dial is not white we should not include the 'C' variant. Likely the grey color dial was another variant, but we do not have nformation at this time to determine which one. I find several variants at the $59.95 price, and most I have no idea what they look like. At least we can identify the watch as a Regatta 23.

I'll go along with that, Ken. Dial appeared to be aged/tropical from white to me (darker around edges than in center), but maybe not. Regatta 23 works for me if that is general consensus.
