Here's a snippet of the 1949 ad above and Jose's watch. Click for full ad.


Looks like a match to me.  Gold content matches, although ad doesn't state Stainless back.  Also the ad says "engraved" and Silver dial, but variations of dial are common.  As for engraved, I think they mean the engraving next to the lugs.

Looks like the ad says "F" variant for graphic (yellow), and "G" variant for rose gold.  Some discrepancies with the Spring 1955 model price lists (below)- both in price of "F" and "G",  and gold color of "G" variant (lists suggest white for G).

Based on this, I vote for Goddess of Time - Unknown variant.  The Money Wards ad is more likely to be wrong on the variant letter than the official Bulova price lists.
