Additional Information: 

I inherited this watch from an aunt who may have purchased it in the 1960s. It is14k white gold with a round face set with diamonds. The back has stamped 14k Bulova and 416886. The side near the stem is stamped 585. The movement is stamped Bulova watch Co, seventeen jewels, 17, Swiss, M1, adjusted and 8A. I am guessing the date is 1961. The bracelet is not the original and also 14k gold.

The stamp on the side probably indicates the gold content. Divide 14 by 24 = .583. Could it be 583 instead of 585?
