I have been looking for a decent Bulova from my birth year of 1974 .  Mostly there are ugly brown dialed watches or Accutrons and I just don't want another hummer.  I also didn't want to go quartz and wanted an automatic.

I did a search for N4... and this guy popped up.  At first I thought it was a smaller sized ladies but kept coming back to it cause  what a funky look.  

So... I snagged it.  It arrived today and I was super pleasantly surprised at how man sized it is.  A rather large Bulova for the time.

It's definately a keeper.

The 1974 "Minuteman" in maroon.

One of my favorite "Chunky" watches from the mid 70's Day/date window placement is quite cool. There are two known variants.  Nice snag!
