Not positive on the year.  The band is a Champion so likely replaced.  Would like to know actual year and what model this is.  Any other info would be great.

Please and Thank you!

Lovely watch and the band is original which is really cool!  Toward the end of the 70's Bulova stopped naming models.  I haven't found a name for yours yet.

According to the linebooks this is part of the 'La Petite' series. The linebook page showing this model has 'La Petite' labelled in the corner. (1977_LineBook_BAWD0210.pdf Page 81 for the panel)

Gosh, I spent an HOUR pawing through linebooks last night. We have TWENTY that cover 1975-1977! I got tired and stopped at #208, I should have tried a few more minutes......

Same here, Geoff, after nearly an hour, I called it quits with the intention of picking it up again in the morning. Well done, Kathy!

I am new to this.  Thank you all for your comments.  What is or where do I view this Linebook?

The linebooks are Bulova yearly internal inventory catalogs and documents currently not available to the public. The company generously  provided access to the mybulova panel members to help us identify watches in a loose partnership with the Bulova Museum. The files are huge (well over 24 years of material)
