The front case (or bezel) will be Gold Electroplate (ie gold plated I believe), with the back being stainless steel.

Here is the watch from the 1974-75 Linebook, listed as a Womens Accutron.

and another from 1974 describing it as a 'tank' style.

Welcome to mybulova. Nice to see it on the original band as shown in the Bulova literature. I don't find another like it in the database, I think yours is a first. Congrats! It's entirely possible she never had a name, only a stock number.

1974 Accutron for now.

Heirloom watches are the best!

Nice one

1974 Bulova Accutron (would we tag it as "Mini" inasmuch as it's a ladies model?)

Welcome to myBulova and thank you for sharing your heirloom watch with us.  Very nice that it still has the original band.
