Looks like someone changed the case back.  Bulovas sometimes hasve a one year difference in date codes, but always with the movement date earlier than the case, 'cause they make a movement then put it in a case somewhere else and around the end/beginning of a year a movement can end up in a case that's a year "newer".  If the case is older than the movement, it's been changed.
