I would like to see a photo of the watch. The patent number that you noted is a patent given on November 16, 1965 to Poon Yuen Sang of Hong Kong for Baldwin Watch Bracelets of New York for Interchangable Variable Width End Attachments for Watchbands. This will shed some light on the band at least.
Photos will help me, but I will also need you to remove the back case if you can because there is a lot of info on the inside of a watch case. There should be a 'lip' on one end of the case that allows you to pry or pop off this case. Don't force anything if you see no lip there. Let me know what you can read there including any numbers.
