Ah, so here is the beginning of the Bulova collection? I knew you'd be back.

This one is a Minuteman, it appears to be in excellent condition, I doubt it saw much wrist time back in the day. The dial can be refinished to look like new again, I think it would be worth it if you plan to wear this one. Also recommend a professional service if you plan to wear it. We have another example here:

Here is an advert as well: 

Thanks for sharing it!

Sorry it took me so long to make this post. Yes, this is the beginning of the Bulova collection. I got the watch from my dad about a year ago. Fortunately it has not seen much use. Where would I be able to have dial refinished? The area clock smith doesn't have this service available. Thank you for the helpful information.

I also agree with Minuteman, and would also add the 'A' variant. There was only one variant available around this time at the $24.75 price, which was the 'A' (model#13205); offsite ad from 1962

Minuteman, A. 

I would recommend International Dial, they do good work, especially with Bulovas I have sent them.

1960 Minuteman "A" works for me.
