Additional Information: 

Lady of Fashion "B" from what I can find in old advertisements. According to the "m6" markings it was produced in 1966, however the first advertisments I can find of the "Lady of Fashion"b"" watch is 1968. This was my grandmother's watch, I found it in one of her old jewlery boxes. It still works perfectly since it is self-winding. This watch is NOT FOR SALE, however if you have more information on this model, I would love to hear it because I cannot find much about this model.

Case reads "co2081" and "m6" "shock resisitant" "waterproof" "self-winding" "stainless steel case" and "anti magnetic"

Inside on movement reads "6cmac" "17 jewels" "m7" and "swiss unadjusted"

Lady of Fashion "B" and a wonderful example with the original band!  Nice ad match and a lovely keepsake from your grandmother.

I agree, a very nice example of the all stainless steel Lady Of Fashion 'B' with what looks like the original band.

It's quite amazing to think they could squeeze an automatic movement into such a small watch.

Congratulations on inheriting your grandmothers watch, what a wonderful thing to own and wear. 

1966 Bulova Lady of Fashion 'B' certainly works for me.

As a watch collector, I think an heirloom piece is just plain the best cdsmiley2. Congratulations on having this wonderful little memory of your grandmother. We call the letter "B" the variant. That means that Bulova made more than of 'version' of this watch.
