I think that watch is Jet Star like "C" from this advert

I agree that this is a Jet Star but not a "C". It's just watch C in the advert (Golden hued case and expansion band with champagne dial)

I agree with Jet Star, variant unknown

 This ad clearly shows the exact case style and also notes goldtone case and gold dial .   This is unlike the previous ad which states a champagne dial and the case just looks a little squattier .    The ad lists it as a Jetstar B.

The "C" is a catalog number, not Bulova designation.
