Welcome to myBulova!  A very nice heirloom for you.  Do you see a date stamp on the back of the case?  It will be a L or M and a number, like L9 or M1 etc.

Pricelists show two 'H' variants, a 17-jewel @ $71.50/$75 in yellow with Diamonds, and a 17-jewel @ $49.50 in yellow - shown above. Also, this 49.50 design was available in both yellow and white gold.

This model line was availale in 17 or 21 jewel configuration.

This one looks to be a good match to the 'H', unless a 21-jewel is hiding inside.

Hi mariuinlove and welcome. Definitely from the American Girl family. I agree, if it's 17 Jewel, it's an

American Girl "H".

I'm good with American Girl 'H'.

I've always wondered if the bands are sping loaded?

These bands are indeed spring loaded, in fact, Bulova used to provide dealers with special 'American Girl' ( or 'Canadian Girl') repair kits. I have such a one, and have used it in the past to repair these. Unfortunatley, once you run out of the little springs and other parts, there is no way to get replacements of course.

Here is one with another Bulova kit for winding/setting:

Did the American Girl get married or was this one tagged incorrectly?

Appears to have been tagged incorrectly. According to her parents the Senator and his Debutante, she's not even engaged at present.
