Welcome to mybulova, Is there a 2 digit code under the serial number on the case back? It should be a letter and number. 1965 would be M5. Also, have you had the back off the watch to look at the movement? An arrow stamp would indicate a date of 1937, which is unlikely. Jewel count would also be stamped on the movement.

There is a date code under the serial number, as far as I can tell it reads "M5." I havent taken the back off and I dont know how the arrow stamp appeared on the info, maybe i just clicked the wrong button. 

Thanks

OK, now we have someplace to start. Watch is a 1965 - unknown movement. I updated the info above to reflect "unknown".

Based on no indication of jewel count on the face, we can speculate that the watch is likely 17 jewel. The hunt for a name begins.

I'd be good with a generic '1965 Yankee Clipper.'
