Correction the watch date is 1977 not 1967, back shows N7. The foldover clasp has the rolled gold content and the name DUCHESS. But there does not seem to be one in the group for that model like this one here on the site.

Some very similar watches and watch bands are shown in 1972 advertisements, with a different name

Hi Lisa - by the mid 1970's Bulova had all but stopped giving watches proper names and only referred to them by model/style number. Your watch is model 53410-7Y, the "Y" designating yellow gold. I've attached an enlarged photo that shows pretty good detail but if I enlarge it any more it gets too fuzzy. Because we do not list every model number in our dB (there literally were thousands) we generally refer to these watches as "Unknown" which only means we don't the name as there never really was one.

PS - Duchess was the manufacturer of the bracelet. They were a supplier to Bulova

I could only find this case design with the 23 jewel movement (like the ad above)(under the center post is stamped '23'). I could not find one showing 17 jewels.

Nice looking watch!

Unknown model.
