It appears to be an accutron date 218 model.

Did I get the case shape correct? I have no background in watches.

Hello rdone, welcome to myBulova. Yes, we would refer to this as a cushion case. Bulova used three basic movements in Accutron watches, yours is a 218 movement, often presented with the crown at the four o'clock position as opposed to the three o'clock placement. Some watches show the date and day, we call them day/date models. A watch showing just the date is referred to as a 'calendar' watch. 

I've looked through our adverts and didn't find an exact match to your watch. I suggest we call this an 'Accutron Calendar" model. Thanks for sharing it with us.
