Bulova 1965 Commander
I received this watch as my high school graduation gift. It was purchased at Redmon Jewelers which was located in a strip shopping center on General Meyer Ave, New Orleans, Louisiana, in the West Bank area. It would have been purchased either late May or early June 1968. It's self winding. As I recall the purchase price was less than $100. It's hard to see in the photo, but the face has sort of a fabric texture appearance. The watch has been in the back of a drawer for many years, but when I wound it it started running. It appears to be losing about 15 to 20 seconds a day.
Stainless steel case, waterproof, self winding, anti-magnetic, and shock resistant.
I have no idea of the watch model. I don't have either the box it came in or any papers that came with it.
Added information on Oct 27, 2013: The stainless steel mesh band is original to the watch and was always in use. It has a folding clasp on the back.
Correction on Oct 28, 2013: Date code M5. Manufacture year corrected to 1965.
