I personally agree with William Smith's line of thought on this one as discussed here.

I will abide by the panel's decision as to whether this is a "G" , "H" or "Unknown Variant". That said; Wil has a valid point that makes sense.

Engineer, unknown variant. 

I'm in agreement on the generic ID with possible G or H variant as the title of the record.

I've looked through the few price guides we have and seen a pattern that any model that comes in both Yellow and White gold, seems to always list the yellow before the white as in variant 'A' = Yellow and variant 'B' = White.

If other members could double check my analysis and either confirm or not that applying this priciple to the subject watch, variant 'G' would be yellow and variant 'H' would be white.

Precisely, Stephen. That was Wiliam's point I was agreeing with. No ads specific to model "H" white (only for "G" yellow saying white was an option) would indicate that "H" wasn't a marketing handle, but rather an inventory control for Bulova record keeping. G and H are listed as the same price; and all ads found to date are for G as yellow or with the option of yellow or white, which would be G = yellow and H = white. Makes perfect sense.

This same yellow/white logic was employed in ID for Banker A/B. Ads list "A" as yellow/ also avialable in white and price list gives A/B notations.  If the same train of thought is followed for consistency; G also available in white means H is the same watch at same price except in white.

I'm going with a 1963 Bulova Engineer 'G'

The watch looks to be yellow gold and not white gold. Can you confirm?

What's giving it the yellow appearance? Is it the photo or colouring?

It's apparently a combination of my lighting and your monitor. Here is a quick snap with a yellow gold on the left for color comparison.
