Welcome to My Bulova. We'll need caseback markings as well as movement information. The case opens with a case knife, you will see a protrusion on the stainless back to pry them apart. Be careful. Use a dull pocket knife or proper case knife. If you are unsure, take it to a watchmaker. 

Early 40's Minute Man?

 Still looking.

Case serial number starting with a '0' would suggest 1940.

If it is a 1940 I would agree that it's a Minute man.

Good advert match. 1940 Minute Man it is.
