Agree with it being a 1970 Bulova Golden Clipper "H". Is the bracelet also marked BULOVA?

The bracelet is marked with a tuning fork; the winding button has an "BULOVA" lettering.

The Golden Clippers came with a 17 jewel movement, but the subject watch is showing a 23 jewel. I don't find a match with 23j.

Dear Andersok,

on this German Website you can see, that the Bulova movement 11 ANACB was built with 17 and 23 jewels.

 Welcome to MyBulova Harry_4711.

I'm going to go with Ken (Andersok) on this one, wrong jewel count to be a Golden Clipper "H".

Based on non-standard serial number that is usually seen on non-US produced Bulovas, I'm inclined to say this is an "International", possibly a European produced Golden Clipper for the European market. It could very well have a different name to reflect jewel count and possibly the band (if original) as well.

A photo of movement and inside of case back would help a lot. Based on currently available information, I would be inclined to put this one under "International" with or without the name "Golden Clipper" as the variant until more info is available.

besides the corresponding number of jewels, I feel the case is a bit different unlike advert, subject watches are for me clean round

I agree, good call. Case does appear slightly different as well.

I did not find an ad match.  Very close to the Golden Clipper but with the jewel count being different I will leave it as unknown for now.
