Inherited a jewelry box full of watches. The 5 Bulova I posted and some others like Elgin, Walker, Waltham, Lucerne, etc.  Love the look of those old watches.

I think the watch is a front loader. You take the crystal off and pop the retainbing ring and pull the movement out from the front.

The back is similar to my 1970 watch I listed. Looks like a threaded ring on the back.

Thanks again for your hard work. I will work on getting the case open to investigate the movement in the next few days.

I could be wrong but it looks like a regular screw in case back.

Ad from 1967 shows a similar manual-wind "Aqua Queen". I had one from 1966 in yellow gold some time ago, and it had a 7BPC movement. The caseback is also a screw-type.
