Additional Information

1977 Bulova Digital Quartz.  Both case and movement marked N7. Movement also marked 

"Bulova Unadjusted Japan No "0" jewels 3011.10" followed by "N7"

with two ink stamps.

Face marked "Bulova" with a drawing of a quartz crystal and "Japan MVT"

Movement model is an unknown by me, as these watches are way out of my collecting focus. Is one of the numbers on movement an identification of model?

It's a little threadbare, but I thought I would add this one just because the Db has none. Originality of band is an unknown.

Very likely an early Miyota quartz digital.

I think they called these Computrons, (names) which then became simply Digital Quartz

To confuse the issue they were also called Bulova LED Quartz Digital.

There is a distinction between the two. LED is "Light Emitting Diode", which were the red face with light up numbers; and LCD "Liquid Crystal Display" being ones like subject watch.

Correct, I meant to type Bulova LCD Quartz Digital. My bad.

Finding heaps of references also for just 'Bulova LCD Digital'

Very cool for the DB.  I think either name works.
