Minute man. Mark has the tag on his watch and it is called out as a Minute Man V.

There is at least one in the data base. I used to have one myself and it kept great time.

Thanks Gary  
JP   I'm not seeing Marks example in database.  Was it discussed in an older forum post vs the watch database? Thanks

I saw a similar looking watch in the my models section, Banker-1967. Just a guess on my part.

Good "guess" Gary
Here's that 1967 Banker record .  The watch which JP referenced above (w/ the Minute Man hang tag) is also mentioned it that thread.

In that thread, Bobbee noted:

Banker, as in this April 1967 ad.http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/uploaded_photos/user2196/0001_0.gif

This December 1968 ad has a better pic of the same model.

Banker from me.  See the other1967 Banker record  for reference.  Other record has several votes for Banker, and 8/10 panel members assinged ticks indicating confirmed.
