For signal $x(t)$ with bandwidth $B_x$ and signal $y(t)$ with bandwidth $B_y$, what will the bandwidth of the signal $z(t)=x(t)y(t)$ be?

The bandwidths simply add.
You can break down both signal into their sinusoidal components and pairwise multiply them. For every pair of sines you get the sum and difference frequencies. This is a simple consequence of the multiplication theorems for sine waves. The highest frequency of the product will be the sum of the highest frequencies in the individual signals. This is equivalent to a convolution in the frequency domain.
