1965 Unknown Bulova watch

Hello all

I am new to this site and to Bulova watches.  I got this watch at an auction and was trying to find out what it is.

The serial on the back is 617677

The stem is missing (hope to find a place that can repair with original part)

14k white gold

the face says BULOVA below the 12 and 23 above the 6

there are 5 diamonds on each side where the band attaches to watch

23 Jewels

5AR is stamped on the inside back of the watch face.

M5 is stamped on the inside back also making this a 1965 I believe.


Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

I added it there trying to upload pictures.  When I was putting pictures on, I didn't know what the year was.  I have since found the year to be 1965 and updated the database.  Sorry for the confusion.
