This one is a bit of an odd bird. Movement is one I have never seen before - 17J automatic, no seconds hand. Movement is marked 1810.10. Inside of case back (snap) is marked "Swiss", "8432" in a box and "Bulova". No import code on movement. The crystal flips open with a spring when the button on crown is pushed. Take note that the back still retains the plastic film disc (yellowed) to protect it.
Mounted on a "Bulova" marked replacement band. Overall condition is exceptional, watch runs and keeps time. I find entries for the "Braille" starting in 1967 Linebook168, and then in 1970 Linebook173 and again in 1977 Linebook 205. All these entries show the other face variation, so I suspect it changed to this configuration in 1978? All 3 of these linebook entries also describe the movement as 17J. I have been hunting one of these for years. One would think that based on the verified production dates that we would see lots of these but that doesn't seem to be the case. I suspect the flip open front was prone to damage, as well as water intrusion through the front and hand damage. It would seem logical that the vast majority of these ended up being damaged to inoperable and discarded.
1979 Bulova Braille. I honestly think this one didn't see much wrist time.
