Everything is 100% original accept for the clasp that was replaced a few years ago. I have no idea what the actual year is, but I know it has to be before 1989. If anyone has any clues about it please let me know.

Hi aliciagstewart, welcome to mybulova. What a nice watch! The "N0" on the back and movement date the watch to 1970.

I have yet to find an ad, but suspect this may be part of the Diadem series. I am still looking.

Unknown for now.

I was guessing that it was from around 1970. I was just curious about the number on the back of the casing be 13226 that maybe it was some type of limited edition. I do know that it is a very small watch and barely fits around my wrist. I have had this watch since around 1989 or so. The number that is above the seventeen on the working part of the watch is 6CD. I was able to get a better picture of it after I uploaded these.

Hello and welcome to myBulova!  The number on the back of the case is the case serial number.  This is a gorgeous watch!  I am guessing it is a Diamem or Marquise but I haven't found an exact match yet.  They both came with a round case and dial like yours.  Will keep looking

Other than the usual suspects for diamond models, I too couldn't find a match.

It’s been a little while since I checked in. I was hoping that some more info could be found on my mystery watch.
