Any additional info people have on this watch would be welcome :). I am currently trying to discover what the engraved numbers mean

Welcome to myBulova.  Really nice looking watch and I like the engravings.  This is just a guess but it might be an address in New Zealand or something like that.  I was unable to find an ad for your watch.

Hi,

 

Does not appear to be a military number but a friend suggested it could have been the orniginal owners' phone number!  Apparently this was a fairly common practice back in the day. I now need to try and locate the relevant phone book to check :)

I wonder if perhaps the engraving is a military serial number. It was not uncommon in years past for servicemen to have their name and number engraved on a watch or ID bracelet to act as a third dog tag. US  Regular Army start with "US" followed by a 8 place number, so It would not surprise me if this was a New Zealand military ID number.

1967 Bulova Accutron 23101  looks like a good match

Is the name 'Paul Piet' also engraved on the back case, or is the first part something different?

Yes Paul H Piet engraved on the caseback so a middle initial adding to the info on the clasp :)

I think it's a match to the 23101 in fact I suggest this is the original bracelet as well, nice package.
