Additional Information: 

The only thing I could not verify or authenticate, is the dial. I could not find another example of this watch that has the same dial. However, it seems that the case, caseback, hands, and movement seem original. 

I do not have any other pictures than the two that I uploaded at this time as my watch is getting serviced.

Here is a link that could be used to take a closer look at everything. 

Thank you!

Hello JPark, welcome to myBulova. I believe your Bulova may be the Deep Sea Chronograph model. We have seen three models of this watch to date but not one exactly like yours. Typically we see these watches with a contrasting colored secondary dials and a black/red rotating bezel as seen here. It appears that the bezel is more like this watch. While the dial is not exactly like either, it is most likely been refinished. Thank you for sharing it.

My suggestion for ID is Deep Sea Chronograph noting a possible replacement bezel.

Hello Geoff, 

Thank you so much for the information! 

Would anyone happen to know where I can get a bezel for this watch?

Thank you in advance!

I agree Geoff; this may be a Deep Sea Chrono and the case looks similar to the 'B' variant; but it may not have the correct bezel, and the dial should have contrasting colors like you mention. I notice the printed 'feet' on the dial is in lower case, I believe this should be capital letters. The white hands may also not be original.
