Additional Information

Case back is dated N1 and watch is engraved for  a graduation from law school in 1972. It's in what I believe to be the original box. Caseback is a snap on, I think; haven't attempted to open it. Face is 2 tone green  with white on gold markers and hands. Gold EP case and RGP back. Band is gold filled. "Bulova signed crown. 
"Bulova" under "12" is printed in gold. I am assuming it's a 17J due to the fact it's a hand wind and face is unmarked for jewel count. Doesn't appear to have been worn very much. President variant?

Nice looking watch. Looks to be the Citizen "B" based on this offsite advert from 1971. Has a similar look to the President models of that time, but they were automatic 23 jewels.

I think you nailed it, Ken. Sure looks like it's a Citizen "B" to me. Appears this is another first for the database.

Cool watch Bob, I agree with Ken on it being Citizen B. I've certainly never seen that model before.
