Hi all 

I believe this may be a 1966 Miss America.  It is a nice little watch which seems to have had little wear.

The Bezel is 10k White rolled gold plate and the back is stainless steel the case is marked Bulova and has the printed number 2742 126 on the inside. The bracelet looks to be original to the watch.  The watch trys to run when wound so it needsa good service. The movement is a 17 jewel unadjusted 5CF which has the name Bulova and  M6 stamped on

regards

George

You're spot on with the id; Miss America is the correct model, and you have the original band. Case# 2742 is the same as the one I posted.

1967 ad:

There were six different variants at the $35.95 price in 1964, so will be hard to narrow down the one that goes with this model.

+1 for 1966 Miss America ID, unknown variant.  Was there a date code on the movement (M6)?
