Additional Information: 

I found this at an estate sale a few days ago. I still don't know if it working, but the hands, day and date move easily. The case has stainless steel on it. The watch band  has a triangle with J8 in it, next to a script font that says Champion stainless steel. The only thing that I am pretty sure about is that it is from 1972 as there is a N2 at the bottom on the back. I don't know much about watches (more of a tech guy) but I know Bulova makes some really nice ones and the case on this was just an interesting shape.

Yes it is. I've search online for anything and haven't seen anything like it. I even looked at old advertisements, but only found some other hexagonal shapes not one like this.

Hello rjramon, welcome to myBulova. I have never seen this case before, it's an interesting find. We have several pages of Accutron adverts from 1972 but none show this model. We would identify this as a Date and Day Accutron.

Thanks for sharing it.

Certainly a rare shape as we have never seen one presented here in person or in any adverts.

Generally speaking it an Accutron Day & Date as both Jabs and Geoff indicate. It would be great to fin an advert showing us the model variant.
