Thank you for posting your watch.  These center second hand watches were marketed towards nurses during the war WWII/Korea/Vietnam war years and the name of this one reflects that.  This is a 1958 Bulova Navy Nurse "AW" variant as we have documented in our 1958-1959 Linebook BAWD0136 page 88.  Your hands appear to be stick hands and might be replacements or original to the watch in 1958 as the line book listing below seems to be from 1959.  Either way still a 1958 Bulova Navy Nurse "AW"

Agree with Navy Nurse "AW" (BW if it had the original expansion band)
