Appears to be the Accutron Calendar "C" model, based off the 1966 advertisement

Have doubled checked and found the 'C' variant to be correct. Variants A,B and D are similar, but it's all 100% a 1966 Bulova Accutron Calendar "C"

1966 Bulova Accutron Calendar "C".   I found one reference of Roughriders from 1966 being a football team in Canada but the initials don't match anyone on the team.

A good effort, Jim. Only reference I have seen relates to Teddy Roosevelt's command during the Spanish American War (1898). I think it's a pretty fair assumption that's not it......

The initials were my grandfather's; John Bradley Jones. He got the nickname roughrider apparently by being a really mean tough guy.

Heirloom watch! Very cool! That makes it a real treasure.

Shot in the dark here; did your Grandfather ride a motorcycle? The original Span Am Rough Riders were Cavalry.
