Hello,

 I purchased this watch years ago at a yard sale but just recently found it. I planned to sell on eBay after researching it.

Here is the problem I'm having :

The back shows M9, which according to the chart means its from 1969...correct?

Well, I have researched for 2 days now 1000s of pics of these and can not find any that have the same dial as this one, the minute marks are in center along with Date in the 3 o'clock space, as opposed to all I have seen with the marks along the outter edge.

I did, however, find what looks to be this exact same watch in a eBay auction for a Bulova Ad Poster in which it states its from 1966.

Can anyone help me figure this out? I would like any info I list to be correct as it will of course help in selling. Praying its worth more then I paid for it :-)  It needs cleaning but I do not want to cause any damage to it so will have to have it done and as far as the movement, I have no idea how to open it .

Thanks so much!
