Hi 5B0 Lady. Could you tell us what is stamped under the "10k rolled gold plate" on the back of your watch? It should be a letter and a number. This is the date code for when your watch was made. It will provide us with a starting point for ID'ing your watch. Thanks.

Hi 1955mercury,

Thanks for your response. 

I hadn't realised that was the date code. It reads 'N0', which makes the watch fvrom 1970 as per the table of the 'date code' section of this website.

Hi 5BO Lady, welcome to myBulova. This is a pretty little watch and looks to be in excellent condition. Bracelet appears also to be original to the watch. I agree with Ken and Will that it's the Goddess of Time model. Thanks for sharing it.

Wow, thank you very much to all of you for the excellent information! I'm impressed with the knowledge and service you manage to provide here. 

We love the name 'Godess of Time', and are really pleased with the piece- it really is lovely and as you have said, in perfect condition.

One further query I guess is- and I ask purely out of interest as it is very much not for sale- what value you think it might have?

Thanks again all.

My personnal opinion is nobody can give you a definite value on any of these vintage Bulovas. It all depends on how bad somebody else wants it and what it would take to get you to part with it. I watch the watch auctions all the time and I've seen identical models in identical shape sell and one will go for $20 and the other for $250. The value of yours would be how much it means to you.

It's a question we get quite often. As a matter of record we are not able to give appraisal here.
