Since the serial number (E66289) begins with a letter, the watch was made in the United States. (Serials that begin with a number indicate the watch was made in Switzerland.) Look at the back again and see if there's a two-character code, such as M2. Compare the code against the list on the following link to find the year of manufacture: http://www.thewatchguy.com/pages/BulovaSerial.html
If it's an Accutron, visit this site to see if it's a 214. He's got a wealth of info on 214s! Good luck!

Try giving the watch a sharp tap with your finger at the 3 or 9 position on the bezel. As Accutrons age the permanent magnets lose a little strength and sometimes need a "jump start" to get the tuning fork vibrating. If that works, it will run until the battery is replaced again. Good luck
