Possible Bulova Date King "NQ"

10K Yellow RGP case with stainless back dated N1; white dial with calendar window and sub-seconds hand; 11BLD movement also dated N1.

Similar to the PA variant, but with different lugs. NQ ads state silver dial, and I am not sure if the color of this dial is considered silver or white.

So this looks just like the '66 Date King, but not the same movement. The back has M9 so I'm guessing a 1969 Date King. Could not find the movement listed on Watchophilia database. 17 jewel 11 BLD, sub dial, 10k RGP and stainless back. I'm stumped.

Thanks in advance to all the experts.

Possible Bulova Date King

This watch is similar to the Date King 'E', there are examples in the database that are SS cases and different dial pattern. Not sure what the yellow gold version would be. Watch has 10kt yellow RGP case (#2525) with stainless back dated M6. Movement is the 30 jewel 10CRACD dated M6. Has a champagne dial with calendar window. Anti-magnetic, shock resistant, waterproof. Replacement strap.

Bulova Date King 'PA' from 1966

Case is 10KT Yellow RGP, with a stainless back marked M5; snap on caseback with the code 2522 stamped inside; 33mm wide w/o crown.

Movement is a manual-wind 11ALD dated M6, with calendar feature and sub-second hand

Dial is White with golden markers and golden duaphine pitched hands. Great condition; no idea if it was ever re-finished.

I added a NOS brown Bulova strap, probably close to the original.

Model:

this model shows up in many ads going by the name of Date King and President ('A' in 64).

1964 Ad - Date King 'A' also President 'A' in '64

1965 Ad - Date King 'PA' alternate Ad

1966 Ad - Date King 'PA'

1966 Ad - President

May 1968 Ad - Date King 'PA'

Nov 1968 Ad - Date King 'NQ' with Silver dial

Not real sure what differentiated the Date King from the President. This watch has a crown with a 'B'

Additional Information: 

I can't identify the model as you may have guessed, and I have neither the skill or knowledge to open the watch to see the inner movements. What I know is that it is from the Swiss factory hence 'T Swiss T' under the face.

Furthermore I have decyfered that the 'M8' is to date it's production in 1968. But the rest is really unknown to me. I have found a couple of models that look similar, like the sea king from '68 but nothing that is identical.
