Initially I thought that the corners of the box are emailed until he I was at home so I knew that sapphires

A rare bird indeed, a very unusual and beautiful watch. The only difference I can see from the ad is the subject watch is only 15j.

Nice one!!!  A case that Bulova contracted perhaps?   Am I seein BELAK inside case back?  Sure looks and sounds like the two supporting ads (which don't have individual names or numbers).

Outstanding early ladies Bulova and always nice to see a platinum case. Listing as unknown for now.

Agreed with Unknown.  
Still curious about the inside back case marks of what looks like BELAK in same or similar script to other stampings.
