Bought it for repair for a gift for Valentines day gift for my wife. It said it was a Men's watch on the ad but I think it is a little too small for me.

I've always liked the look and design of these. Wish they were a bigger size, like you mention they are more suited for a lady.

Its a Men's Model 

Its unfortunate that because the size of a any watch we immediately consider the gender. Pocket Watches were big and cumbersome and then came the Wrist Models. There was no golden rule of the day how big or small a wrist watch could be. From the larger Trench Models to the fashion trended smaller cases, Bulova made watches for all social groups, men and women alike. It was a era when fashion and trends mattered. Today the more the "Bling" the better is a trend that is dying fast. Watch manufacturers are returning back to styles of the deco eras. As a older male I wear my Director proudly!

Thanks Andersok. It really is beautiful. The patina just adds to its appeal to me. 

That director is perfect!

I think it's a Director, also. This type of watch would be a good candidate for up-sizing and re-release as a modern Bulova, I think.
