Thanks for adding this one foxrider. I'm a fan of Bulova's 1970's style, I call it mod. Like everyone else in the fashion industry, they were doing some funky case designs and this is one of them.

I've looked through everything in our advert database but just don't find a match. Bulova partnered with Christian Dior for several years in the 70's and at first blush I expected this to be one of those watches. All we've seen of the Dior watches have "Dior" on the dial face so I'm not sure this is one of them.

Unknown for now, still looking.....

Thanks for the update , after reading this I looked over the watch again to see if "Dior" was marked anywhere on it but didn't see anything. So is this common to find a watch with no references in their own catalogue?

So I just found this Bulova/ Dior watch it's pretty similar to mine minus the color an band , any chance that mine is the male version . Not sure if mine is a ladies or man's watch

Foxrider, it is possible that it's a Dior, I just can't find any proof. My guess is that it's a womans watch.

So are we looking at a rare piece or just something that wasn't popular enough to for either Bulova or Dior to really document. My plan is to sell the watch off in your professional opinion any idea what I should base my asking at?

I've seen these before.  My impression is that they weren't popular enough to last, but the same could be said of quite a few 70's designs. 

We don't do evaluations here, but I do suggest just looking at other ladies mechanical Bulova watches from the 70's for a ballpark figure on eBay.

The Dior series typically had the name on the dial. 

I'm at Unknown for now. It's a very unique design and I do feel that I've seen an advert before somewhere in my travels. Will keep an eye out for it.

Unknown model; the design certainly screams 70s, and also is similar to the Dior line.
