Additional Information: 

Hi, My daughter in law sent me this watch to see if we can find any information on it.  The back of the case has 10k rgb bezel st steel back.  Inside the back of the case it has M7625.  The inside of the watch it self has the markings, jewel, swiss, Bulova watch company, and several other markings I can not make out.  The jewels are present it appears.  The front of the watch has Bulova and Bulova it has movement.  I can't find out for sure if it is a real bulova or the age I found that the M means 1967.  Do not know what model it is.  The watch band I think was replace as it has Speidel USA.  Can anyone help?

The case is not Bulova, the dial says "Bulova movement" which is a dead givaway to that concept. It looks like a late 40's movement used in Nurses watches of the period.

Under Bulova on the dial it also says "Movement".

What this is, is a Bulova movement that has been placed into an aftermarket case.

The movement is real Bulova but the case is not.
