Watch Description

case material 10K Gold Plate

I found this watch with a pile of my Grandmother's costume jewelry. I was shocked to find a brand that I recognized (besides Anne Klein) so I was curious to know more about it. The band is broken but just needs the hinge pushed back together. The clasp still works. The watch is dirty. I imagine it has been in this pile for at least 20 years, but if there's one thing I've learned from shows on the History channel it's don't try to clean things on your own if there's a chance that it is valuable.

My suggestion is 1962 DAPHNE (advert from 1964)

Hello Sgmac78, welcome to myBulova. I'm a big fan of family heirloom pieces. I think you're most fortunate to have a wrist watch from your grandmother. It appears to be in very nice condition, considering it's age. As usual, I suggest having it professionally serviced if it's going to be worn.

I also agree with jabs, it appears to be the Daphne model.

Cool heirloom, agree with Daphne ID.

Agree with Daphne; consider this also being the 'A' variant based on the 1961 price guide stating the yellow version as 'A' (white for 'B'), and no other variants listed

Wow! That's amazing. Thanks so much for your help!

I'm good with 1962 Daphne variant "A" based on the ad and Ken's info.  
I may go two ticks tentative for the "A" variant until an ad surfaces, but I think it's a pretty solid variant call.
