A Bulova classic. This advert shows it in yellow as President C (third from bottom). I'm not sure if the "C" variant would extend to the white version.

1958 Bulova President.

I think this is yellow gold, which is the 'C' variant. The white gold 'D' variant had a black dial.

The case material on this particular watch is white gold filled.

So, a few things do not match on this watch being white gold. The silver hands are incorrect on a gilt marker dial (or are the markers also white?). The white case used a black dial. Perhaps a combination of different models has been used here.

....and my concern was also that the white gold version was advertised with a black dial. I passed that over when I suggested it as  a President. I still think it's a President case but now you have me second guessing myself.

I think I'm staying with my original ID but noting a possible dial swap.

I'm thinking President no variant noting possible dial swap from another President. Case is white indicating a "D" but face appears to be from a "C" (yellow gold).

It's all President, but appears to be a marriage of 2 variants. Other option I see at this time would be non-conforming.

I lookslikemthe components are all "President' related, but I do also think the dial may not be orginal as the 'silvered' hands seem to indicate that it orginally had a black/silvered dial and not a white/gold dial.

Generic Bulova President, noting the possibility of a dial swap.
