Jim you might try searching known mybulova watches using the year, and just browsing for similar.  you could also narrow by the # of jewels in that search.  Maybe one of these is a known watch which matches yours.

I looked where you told me to but still could not find anything on this watch.

I see this similar model (different dial) listed as a Ruxton in the early 50's. Then possibly a Moonbeam (going on crystal specs) around 1960 with a different dial. this subject watch again has a different dial to those two but the same case.

This 1970 ad matches the watch and identifies it as the Minute Man 'R'; looks to also still retain the original band.
