at first I tipped to some variant of Golden Goddess, but then I found this advert to Sunburst "C" from 1963

I think it quite match, what do you think

Good ad match, 14k case, 23 jewels, dial matches. I'm curious about the ad stating multi-colored gold; is that what I am seeing in the side-view photo above. If so, that is a rather neat design.

"Multi-colored gold", wow, I've never heard of it. I don't think I've ever seen it either. This is a very nice little Bulova Wynot.

I'm seeing it now....I had to look a few times to see it, but yep it's there.

Would love to see the matching  multi-colour band if you are ever lucky enough to fins one.

Thank you all!  I'm glad to bring something a little different to the forum.  Now that the watch has been identified, how long before the Not for Sale changes to For Sale?  Thanks again!
