Second one in the db, I'd say it does match the ad.

1971 Lido.

1971 Bulova Lido looks like a match.

The LIDO in the advertisement above is a different style of watch to the subject watch, and can be seen clearer in this 1960 ad. The lugs are different, and I don't find any Lido ads post 1962. I've checked the 70s ads and do not find a match, though the Laurel J has a similar dial.

Unknown model at this time.

I'm afraid I have to jump on the "Unknown" bandwagon as well.

Yes agree with Ken as well.  Looks very different in the color ad.

Unknown for now.

The older Lidos don't have the blue chapter ring, they have metal versions of it. For some reason, I thought we had more examples of this.

Wondering if this watch belongs to the 'Laurel' series? They had a number of variants.

Found this ad in the DB, 1960 ads for Lido. (on the right, Number 6)

 

The lugs are different, possible Lido watch? or perhaps the dial has been placed in another bulova case.
