Additional Information: 

Unfortunately, I cannot get the back off to check the movement caliber.

I have tried in the past and again today to no avail.  It hasn't been in for a service yet, so..........

eventually. 

There are three pin heads (should be four...one is missing),  that look like screw heads without the slot, one seated directly next to each lug.  I cannot budge them!  I imagine the missing one flew across the past owners room and was never seen again.  :  ) 

They are somewhat visible between the case and watch strap.

I agree, Bulova 23 'U'.

Not sure how the case disassembles; almost looks like a press case where the crystal and caseback separate out together from the rear.

Crystal is glued to the bezel.
