I just picked up two more Bulova watches to go with the two I already own. They are both M3 or 1963 and I believe they are both the Regatta series. This is the first one and Has desirable gold inlaid numerals and raised markers and original set of hands. Size: Measures 33 mm side to side (excluding crown) and 37 mm lug to lug. Kev.

Regatta 23 B from me

I think this one needs to be corrected. The ad that we have been attributing as a B is actually a D  Based on the 1963 line book BAWD0151.
