I think your watch is right on the transition edge between Clipper "A" and Sea King "BW" as discussed here.

https://www.mybulova.com/watches/1966-clipper-8720

Clipper "A" was usually face marked Self Winding and backmarked Water Proof through 1967.

Post 1967 (earliest avail. ad 1969) , watch was renamed Sea King "BW" and marked Automatic and Water Resistant. Regulations for watches changed in 1968 and "waterproof" was replaced with "water resistant". The line between "self winding" and "automatic" is a little foggy, but seems to be in the same time frame.

I'm just splitting hairs here; I'll agree as a 1967, it's a

Clipper "A".

Very nice watch, I love the red/black strap, it really kicks up the looks.
