Hello and welcome to myBulova!  Great looking watch with that textured case and dial.  It looks a lot like the Minuteman "B" but I haven't found an exact match yet.  I will keep looking.

I have searched both the 60's files and the Unknowns and did not find a match.  It has a similar florentine case to a couple of the Senators, a Clipper "F", and an Engineer "G" but not finding an exact match. 

Unknown for now

yet I think it will be Senator, we have identical watches in the database, which differ only in the digits layout on dial, there are

Bulova was putting out some fabulous design in the mid sixties, this watch is one of the best - I LOVE IT! The dial, that font, that case shape......

Ms. Lisa has it as a Senator as well as the Dave and Camille watch Jaroslav linked above. Both ID were based on crystal spec although the argument that this would be a VERY unusual shape size has some validity. I'm tentative, as I would be on the other two as I'm not a big fan of crystal only ID.

I have to agree. Tentative Senator. Crystal specs only ID is tough, but in the case of a stand alone like this one (shape), it's a pretty good argument for ID.

Great watch by the way. I really like it.
