This is Mariquise I believe.  She is 14K pink gold, marked Bulova 14K with the serial # on the back and nothing but service marks inside.  After getting the Duchess I was hoping to find a Mariquise to round out the trio with Christine.  She is even prettier in person than I hoped : )

That is a very nice example of the Marquise. I like the color of the dial, the lighter shade compliments well with the rose gold. I did not find mention of any variants, nor it coming in white or yellow. Marquise name was around for several decades.

Thank you.  I took the extra time to photograph this one a with a DSLR and off camera flash to get the true color.  Most of the time I just use my iPhone.  Getting a solid rose gold watch was on my wishlist so I was hoping I would love the color and I do : )

That dial is mint!

The watch looks like it was never worn, maybe NOS?

Thank you.  Very well taken care of and it has a nice tight dust cover that probably helped keep the dial pristine.  I didn't even have to clean the case.  Not NOS though as it came on a metal band that I replaced with this vintage cord band like the original.

Well done Kathy, nice addition to the collection. It's amazing how the list of "yeah, I need one of those too" watches never gets smaller. What's next on the list?

Thank you : ) Actually my list is pretty small at the moment.  Want to get a birth year watch but haven't found one I love yet.  Still have a couple of Her Excellency variants I would like to pick up.
