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.

i picked this watch up the other day, it's missing the winding stem and crown, but looks good and will run a bit, shows very little use. Dial and hands are really nice, case shows minimal wear,  even the crystal is fairly clear, although someone has obliterated the date code. Movement is marked M7.
