M4 = 1964.

The model is a 'SQUADRON'

 Welcome.  The date is 1964, determined from the date code M4.  If you go to the drop down on the page header for "Information" it will give you an option to determine age by deciphering the Bulova date codes.

Under the same drop down you can also access advertisements for the various years and hopefully find a match to your model.  The "Search" drop down will let you select from various watch models and movement identification.  Have fun.  I can't identify the model, as I do not see an ad with a sub-second chapter in the range of 1963-1965, but someone here will.
