Louis,

First off, the movement is stamped N2 which would mean 1972 production, and the caseback looks like it is stamped N0 (1970)??

That would indicate that the movement was placed in an older case. It is not a 1959 watch and the ID would be hard to determine. I would say this is a Frankenbully...with all factory parts.

Old ticker, thanks for your comment. I changed the year to 72.

Louis,

What is the date stamped on the caseback? From your picture it looks like NO.

Many of these newer Bulova's did not have a name but rather went by model number, the 3110 stamped inside the caseback is part of that number and also used to ID the crystal that it takes.

Sometimes the crystal catalogs will name the watch using this number,  I don't have any catalogs that are that new, my newest is 1966, but someone here might.

This appears to be a 1972 Bulova Concerto "CN" or "CM" based on the 1973 Line Book BAWD0181 Page 45 of 94.  Can't tell if its s yellow or white.
