1979 Bulova Braille is a good match.

Does the watch have an actual 1810.10 movement inside?

No, it came without a movement. It currently has a similar movement inside, but it's unsigned, from a stock of American Foundation for the Blind, who had stencil watches made for them.

I do, but it was a sample, so the bracelet was split and shortened. Unfortunate, as I can't find similar links to extend it to fit.

Yup, Bulova signed as well. For all we know, that might be the actual watch in the pic!

Interesting as I just purchased this sample watch (shown on the right) from eBay. Looks like there may have been a few of them made.
