Additional Information: 

My mother passed away and she gave me her Bulova Dior 14k watch before she passed. The watch was a gift to her from my stepdad and she was the original owner. I remember her wearing it for most of my childhood, not sure why she stopped wearing it other than she possibly gained weight and couldn't get it around her wrist any longer. I need to get it cleaned and I don't know if it works yet because I'm afraid to mess with the dial until I've had it checked or get information to help from this forum. How do I get it working again, it's an automatic wind-up and I don't know how to change to the correct time and give it the initial wind up as I'm afraid of messing it up. I would like to open the case but I don't know how, if you could help with that as well, then I will add that image and information that's within the case. FYI, I based my answer for the movement model on what information I found on this forum not on actual knowledge. Also I would like any other information you would have on the design, maker, popularity, etc. Any help is appreciated.

Just a nice little Dior we got in for service, really gummed up but running exceptionally well now.  A Bulova designed movt, not from an ebauche as near as I can tell. Very good quality.
