Hi Francisco - with your permission I switched the first and last photos, so the clear shot of the front is the leading pic. I also updated the year from 1967 to 1977 as it has a date code N7 (1977). By the mid seventies Bulova had stopped giving watches proper names and only used model numbers. I found your watch in one of our catalogs from 1977. They tagged it the 81312-1W, as you can see below it sold for $99.95 USD. 1977 Bulova Quartz

  Thank you for correcting the date code and the arrangement looks much better. And as always appreciate the additional information provided  I didn't purchase this with the intent to sell. So I was pleasantly surprised to see it runs and that the screen shows no signs of fading. I have a couple of others women's watches I'll be adding soon.

Nice complete original kit for a 1977 Bulova 81312-1W

Marking this one as a generic 1977 Bulova Quartz as I suspect that other than the official model number, it won't have a variant number

Wonderful to see it's in all original condition, including the box.

Trying to understand your use of Generic, the watch or the movement?

Does that make this watch any less desirable to collectors? 

When i first started collecting my plan was to have a watch that would represent different eras or types of watches manufactured by Bulova. 

Thanks once again for your input and contribution to my limited knowledge base.
