a 1972 tentative International from me. It's 1969 now.  I can't "see" the darned date codes too well.

'INTERNATIONAL' is not a model Name, International was/is is a division of Bulova Watch Corp. - Not confirmed.

International was/is a division of Bulova Corporation and not a Model name.

We really do know that fact, we can read.

It STILL doesn't mean it is not the name of the watch. Usually, when a watch has words under the makers name, that is the model name.

Unless,of course, You have absolute proof to the contrary.
