Welcome to myBulova!  What a lovely watch and in the original box.  If you could open the watch and take a photo of the movement take would be helpful.  If you do not want to do it yourself most jewelers are happy to do it and let you take a photo.  Based on the box I think the late 60's or newer is a good guess.

This is an interesting piece, I don't think I've seen one like it before. I wonder if it's a Bulova Centennial model. I think Bulova celebrated 100 years in 1975.

I'm with Geoff, never seen one before and assume it's likely a 1975. I would almost be inclined to go with the box and tag it a  Bulova "One Hundred".

A picture of the movement would be helpful.

Hello! That's pretty much what I was thinking. I can't open the back and the person I brought it to couldn't either, although I will be checking in with another local business this week to see!

Is it just me or is the inside cover picture a bit risque?

Thinking I've seen something similar if not the same...the pocket watch that is.

Not sure whether to put it as a Bulova Pocket Watch "One Hundred", or make a new model called "One Hundred".

Listing updated to 1975 which would co-incide with one hundred years for Bulova.

It is risqué isn't it! The picture on the front is bit naughty also. I guess that was popular with pocket watches. It's quite interesting!

Another, but bicentennial. I guess showing what pocket watches looked like 200 years ago.
