This watch has the 'O' on the inside of the case. It is an American Standard Case 14K white gold. I have noted a date based on the case. I have seen a watch like this in a 1923 advertisement on your website. I want to know the value or if I should sell it for melt. It runs, but probably needs to be cleaned and look at by a reputable watch repair person. The case is monogramed on the back. I have taken the best photos I can.
Welcome to myBulova and thank you for sharing your watch with us. Like this one https://mybulova.com/watches/1922-156-5407?page=1
We do not give values on this site because there are too many variables, condition, collectability, current market, etc. You can search ebay to see what 14k watches have recently sold for to get a rough idea of current value. Personally, I would love to see you try to sell to collectors first so it has a chance to go to a collection instead of being melted down.

Looking a little closer at this model.
In April 1923 is was known as the 956,in June it changed to 156 and then in December 1924 (possibly earlier) is was fiuanlly named Minerva.
With hand and early movement, I'm leaning towards the earlier version, thus 1923 Bulova 956
