Additional Information: 

requesting information on this watch. Found wrapped in tissue in Grandma's jewerly box. No band, stem pulls out to set time. Won't wind, does'nt run. Anyone in Kansas City, Missouri or near here repair Bulova's? If its not cost prohibitive i would like to repair, get an appropriate band and wear it. I would consider selling as well. Its real neat

So if it matches the 1942 ad DarHin posted above, the first digit of case serial number dates it to 1943.  Jan Lea- were you able to look inside the watch to see the movement?  This would give jewel count and may help with the date question.

This is what you would need to be looking for if you would like the correct band, and they can be found on the bay...it just takes a bit of searching.

I will many times buy some junky watch just for the band, and after I have a few of the junky watches gathered, I turn around and sell them minus the bands...sometimes I actually make a couple bucks!

Love this band! Does it have a name?
