Hello Yudi, welcome to myBulova. I haven't had a chance to look for a model name for your lovely watch but until we find it I would suggest that if the bracelet can be repaired, it could most likely be done by a very skilled jeweler. I think that finding a replacement would be most difficult.

This is one of those watches I think I've seen a thousand times in adverts, but funnily enough I'm not having much luck now. Yudi, eBay is probably going to be your best bet for a replacement band.

Unknown for me too.

Unfortunately, these bracelets are integrated to the bezel and replacing them is very difficult. You would have to find another watch identical to this and just swap out the bracelet/bezel. If the weave was solid gold they can be repaired, but as a base metal I'm afraid that isn't possible. 

Still, this is no different than many restoration issues where you have to find another watch as a parts donor and make one good watch.
