Its a mens Bulova 'Grant' with solid 14K gold case. A very nice watch actually.

Original worth about $85 back in the day.

Do you think that this watch is in decent shape just by looking at it?

Cosmetically it looks in decent shape.  Mechanically, that would depend on when it was last serviced, regardless if it's running now or not.  Even if it runs fine now, if it has not been serviced recently, it is likely to degrade the parts if ran without being serviced.
