This one could be a Clipper of sorts or just a Model number, but either way I am not able to find any matches in our ad database. Not exactly sure what the M.R.P. in the caseback represents, perhaps a case manufacturer. Certainly has the period look; have to go with Unknown at this time.

Am I seeing the number 954474 on the outside case back?

Sorry Denis, I guess I nodded off and missed a couple of your additions. I like watches from this era, the 'mod' 70's.

I don't think I see any matches either. As Ken points out, by this time in Bulova history, most model names had fallen by the wayside and watches were only model numbers.

The numbers you see on the case back William are the dates 1954-1974 as this was a 20 year service award watch(from a company called Smith-Alsop).
