Hello Cshepherd15, welcome to myBulova. I think your watch is a twin to mine other than a movement swap at some point in my watch.  My watch shows the bezel ring to ne 10K solid gold over a stainless steel case and I'm pretty sure I had the exact same band on mine once upon a time.

We never found an advert match so I'm afraid we can't give it a proper name yet, but we keep looking. 

Thanks for sharing it!

Bulova 30. The 'QW' variant calls for a 14k gold bezel ring; not sure if this watch has that or a 10k.

Thank you. I think we should consider the 'QW' variant for the Bulova 30 model.

What is the QW? What’s it mean?

Over the decades Bulova produced a great may models with each model having a number of what we call 'variants'. In the case of your watch the model is a "Bulova 30' and the variant is "QW", which would differentiate it from other "Bulova 30" models, by variations in the dial, hands or case.
