    It looks nice. That's pretty large looking for a vintage watch. Congrats on your new old Bulova!

    Great looking watch. There should be a two character date code on the back...probably N4 or close. This is probably one of the "Senator" models, based on the combination of 23 jewels Automatic, waterproof steel case and day/date. Does the crown "depress" to set the date?

    it's N1 on the back case and the date does skip when pressed in then back out.
