Additional Information

Appears to me to be a 1969 Time Center "A" based on on-site research; as referenced in the shown 1969 ad. Watch movement has an interesting clear lucite spacer pressed into the back that I have never encountered. Case and movement both dated M9. Band is a period replacement with 1973 dated calendar spool in it. I would assume the original had a spool that was generic  with a selection of months starting the first of the month on each day of the week so it would be good "forever".

Interesting note: the face shows an incorrect "IIII" for the number 4 instead of "IV".One would assume that was artistic license to balance the face. Personally I think it would have been better balanced if all numerals below the 9 - 3 line were composed if "I's" and "V's" and all above being "I's" and "X's".

Additional Information

Unsure of what exactly this one is as it's marked Bulova, 23 Jewels, self winding.  The movement, the 10cpacd, has very little written online about it other than a mention that it was one of few American made movements with a complication (date).  10kt gold filled case, inside caseback case style stamp = 2525.
