Could you please add a pic of the back of the case and inside of the caseback?

It will be nice to see the back of the case either inside or out for us to confirm this is an actual Bulova watch and what model it may be.

Thank you! I've added two more photos -- The outer back of the watch case looks a little fuzzy in the photo, but there are no marks or writing on it.

Looks like a 14K solid gold case. Can you confirm?

Does the case say Bulova anywhere on it?  Or any other markings.

The only Bulova markings are on the movement and crown. I don't see anything on the case apart from the 14K marking.

This is a really nice watch. I'm on the fence with this one. Typically even a solid gold case will have some Bulova marking. I'm inclined to ID as Non-Conforming (a watch that is not comprised of all Bulova manufactured components).

Panel members, can we please finish this watch?

Based on the 14K case I'm at Unknown. I'm not 100% certain it's not all original.
