Re: NEED REPLACEMENT CRYSTAL WATCH
I'm afraid there will be no good reason to explain where to get the exact crystal for your watch as plenty of special skills and tools are needed to replace it. The best solution is to find out your nearest watch repair shop and ask for replacement. Any decent watchmaker can do it. If you want this job done by Bulova itself, visit this site:

Most Bulova Watches have PRESSURE TIGHT backs. Meaning the back is applied with EQUAL amounts of pressure to the entire back. There are two(2) solutions:
1. Take the Bulova watch to an experienced watch dealer/repaiman, to have the back applied, or
2. CAREFULLY MAKE SURE THE BACK IS IN THE PROPER POSITION, then WRAP THE ENTIRE watch with a soft, cushy clothe and with a pair of pliers, CAREFULLY apply pressure to the center of the back plate, until the back covers seats to the proper depth(closed), at the same time BEING VERY CAREFUL not to crack the watch crystal!!
You could always ask the maker (go to Boluva.com and get the address of your nearest service center).
It seems s unlikely that they will be able to help with such an old watch but you never know your luck. I'm sure that they will be pleased to hear that your watch is still working after such a long time!
I am not sure about prices in US, but over here in England we charge £15 - £25 for mineral glass (depending on size, thickness, e.t.c.) and £50 - £120 for sapphire glass. As for today: £1 = 1.60$. Doesn't matter how you name it - glass or crystal, both are right.
You are right, this type of watch can be opened by lifting crystal and extruding the stem. As for lifting the crystal you need a specialized tool, there is no other way then to go and find your nearest watchmakers shop. If you will try to lift the crystal using knife or any other unspecified tool, you will damage the crystal. Even if you will be lucky enough to get it out without any damage, you will not be able to fit it back, because the watch crystal setting tool reduces the crystal diameter for easy fitting. Best solution for you is to see the watchmaker and ask for help. Do not forget to rate, please.
