Same as the early 1960s Senator. Interesting that its from the later end of the decade, unless they didn't change the deisgn. Looking now in the ealy 70s to see if I can find a match.There is a watch on eBay at the moment that is exactly the same as the subject watch with the date code M0. Please confirm that the M9 isn't in fact M0.

It is definately M9 dated case but as stated the movement is from 1970(N0).

In that case a 1970 Bulova Senator it is. Wow a Bulova watch that didn't change its design or name for 10 years..... Now there's a change.

Looks like a Senator to me.  Just a latter dated example.

1970 Senator

I agree that it looks like the early sixties Senator but am on the fence about the 10 year date difference. I would be tentative/unconfirmed on that ID.

I don't remember the date of our last ad for this model?  If its 10 years since the last ad.....well, .....I'd be tentative at best.  If its 1968, then I'm good with the ad/ID.

Edit:  Seeing a 1962 ad, but with slightly different sub-seconds.

The Senator ID was just a guess based on the case beeing identical to my 1963 Senator.
