Identical watch in DB here:http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1974-unknown-4975

Caseback of Subject is N3, movement has N4, giving true date of 1974.

Looks like someone changed the case back.  Bulovas sometimes hasve a one year difference in date codes, but always with the movement date earlier than the case, 'cause they make a movement then put it in a case somewhere else and around the end/beginning of a year a movement can end up in a case that's a year "newer".  If the case is older than the movement, it's been changed.

This appears to be a 1974 Minuteman based on this ad.
