Additional Information: 

This example has not be cleaned or serviced and was aquired by me on Nov 30, 2017.

It is my understanding the movement is accessed by removing the crystal, which I am not competent to do; therefore, I cannot provide a movement description.

The watch does run and kept reasonable time for the period observed after some winding. I am reluctant to activate the movement further pending servicing as I am unaware of the service history or condition of the movement currently or prior to my aquiring the watch.

Case: 31.75mm, Case with crown: 33.17mm, Lugs: 17.56mm, Lug to lug: 38.2mm, Case thickness: 9.37mm.

Signed Bulova: dial, caseback

This Kreisler "1/20-10KT G.F. TOP" band appears original to the round case 1960 President line; however, this band seems associated with the other President variant in ads and other examples that I saw on this site and others.

Looks to me to be a President  "E" based on a short ad uploaded by Bobbee in Dec. 2012. Second page about 1/2 way down. Ad shows President models A - F.

Update: figured out how to insert the ad above.

I'd say it looks like the President 'E', based on the ad.

I agree with President 'E'; looks to have the band from the 'F'
