Can anyone provide information about this watch?

I received this watch from my grandmother about 20 years ago.   I can't make out much detail on the movement - I don't have a magnifying glass :)

Back case: N04914 

Inside Back Case: 14K Gold / L&W / M219  

Face:  23

To really help you identify this watch it would be very useful if you could add it to this site with a picture or 3 of the case, movement and face.

From what you have indicated so far, might be from the 1960s/70's.

Have a look at the back case for a date code (see www.mybulova.com/bulova_date_codes)

The 23 means its a 'Bulova 23' called as such for the fact that it has 23 jewels as apposed to the normal 21 jewels.

If you list it on the site place it under the 'Unknown' type and hopefully in due course we all can help correctly identify it.

I posted it as 1962 Unknown.  I will try to get a better picture of the inside.  Thank you!

Very nice watch. It's certainly a 'Bulova 23' model, so feel free to update your listing to indicate so.

The 14K indicates its priced at the higher end of the market for old Bulovas.

What are the markings on the movement? The photo is a little blury.

Does it have a M2 stamped on the back case under the case serial number?

Not that I see. It has M219 stamped on the inside of the back case.  I'll add  picture of the back, the one I tried to take of the inside didn't turn out...
