I couldn't find this movement in 17 jewels, all I saw were 23. I figured I'd add the watch to help complete the records once we figure out what it is. Thanks!

Found in the 1973-1975 Line Book BAWD0184 Page 42 of 530.  It is a close match except for lack of the 9 and 3 on the subject watch dial.

I am thinking this might be a 1973 Bulova Concerto "J" noting the missing 3/9 hour markers/

The pictures don't do the color justice, sorry. It is white gold, making that a Concerto "K" variant, correct?

when it´s white then "K" variant is correct
