Additional Information

 I have no clue the real name for this Bulova. I found on the chart that it was made in 1976  however the movement was made in 1972 a 5BD. I combed the whole website looking at ads and pictures. It's a mystery except for when it was made the pretty watch you can tell it was a gift somebody engraved love fox on it.

So there she is I hope we can find out the name  this beautiful Bulova.

Looks like the Goddess of Time BD in white, but the jewel count doesn't match.  Possible movement replacement?

Wow good eye! I  I find it interesting that the movement is different. But thank you.

You're most welcome, neurotone. 

Is your watch is White or Yellow?

It is Yellow TexasLady. Besides the Engraving of Love Fox this is what it says on top

Bulova N6

10 Kt rolled gold plate on top and then on the bottom is the serial number.

Then your watch is a Goddess of Time "BC" with your confirmation of the watch being in Yellow.  My monitor makes it look like it's White. Noting the movement & dial swap of 23 Jewels instead of 17Jewel.

You can pick up another movement & dial on ebay at a reasonable price so it will conform to the proper Bulova specs. as the Goddess of Time "BC"

Thanks for posting your watch, neurotone.

Pretty watch.  I would agree this is a Goddess of Time.  It is most likely the "BC" with a movement replacement from another Goddess of Time that I will post an ad for.  Hard to say why they might have done this, preference or repair replacement.  The first ad is from 1976 showing your watch.  The second is from 1973 showing a Goddess of Time with a 23 jewel movement that looks like it would be a match to your replacement.

Thank you!!  That’s what was throwing me off was different movements.  I didn’t even think of a movement replacement.

I'll go for the Goddess of Time ID but am holding the variant for now.....the dial showing "23" disqualifies it, at least I think it does, as BC with a movement swap.
