Whilst I cannot find the axact advert match, I suspect your watch belongs to the 'Bulova Mini Accutron' line.

If the case back has a 'M6' then it will be from 1966.

I'm always amazed they were able to make them this small....

PS - 8000 wraps of copper wire in each coil, the wire is ONE FIFTH the diameter of a human hair!

I'm fairly certain these were not made until the early 1970s, 1972 is the earliest Mini Accutron ad I can find, so 1966 is not possible. Could be N6 on the back?

Yes I think you are right Ken.  When you zoom in on the back it does look like a N6 and the engraving has a 78 Date.
