Additional Information

Here is a stainless version of the yellow gold one we have under Unknown.  https://mybulova.com/watches/1974-unknown-5488?page=1#comment-82918

It appears to be a 1974 Bulova 11013-0W based on the 1974-1975 Line book.The case is stainless steel with a blue dial.  The crystal was faceted but broken so I replaced with a regular one.  The movement is an 11AOACB with an N4 date code. The model number is very close to the Minuteman model numbers but I could not find an ad match to this name.

Cool watch, I like the "award" band. It's too bad the linebook doesn't name it.

1974 Unknown for now

I looked long and hard for a name.  We have two versions now.  Yellow with a brown dial and Stainless with blue.  I am going to find it one day.

Right around the time we start seeing fewer names. It may be a part of a named series, like Buccaneer - which had some using the faceted crystal.

Nice watch; Unknown for now.
