I've gone through our limited number of 70s ads and did not find a match to your watch. I'm wondering if it was a model sold/manufactured overseas internationally, since we typically see a '23' marked on the dial for US models with a 23-jewel movement. Also, not uncommon to see a one-year difference between the case and movement. I think also that the band is not original; only because I don't feel Bulova would have used the type with the adjustable ends.

Looks to be an Unknown model, at this time.

Unusual shape, can't say I've seen one like it. I agree that the bracelet is not original.
