Please help identify my Bulova

Please help me find out more about my Bulova. I think it is from 1976 but I cannot find another match to this design. I found this at an estate sale so I don't know much history about it. I just loved the gold weave pattern & checkerboard on the face.

Very nice!  You are correct on the date, given the "N6" on the back of the case.

Thanks Nova! I love this watch so much. Do you know what the style would have been called? It is just so odd that I cannot find another image online of the same watch?

I do not know what your watch is called.  I have a similar model, which can be seen at www.watchophilia.com, and I have not yet come up with a name for it.  We're very short on ads from the 1970s, particularly the later years.  Also, at that time, Bulova was using a lot of numbers to identify models, rather than individual names.

You may have some success contacting Bulova directly.  They have some information regarding models dated as late as yours.  Their email address is on their Web site.  I, and others, have had very good success receiving a response from them, though it may take a few days.  If you decide to contact them, be sure to send the same information you posted here.  Your pictures are clear and should give them enough information to respond.  If they can't give you an exact model name, they may at least be able to tell you what collection the watch belonged to. 

Please let us know what you find out.
