Hey everyone,

This is my first Bulova! I found it in great shape at an antique shop in New Orleans, and I've really enjoyed searching the web for more information about my find. I've gotten pretty close to what I think it is--it seems to be a 1970 model, either a Sea King, Oceanographer, Ambassador, perhaps an Elite series, or some mutant hybrid of all of the above. That said, I haven't been able to find the exact model detailed on mybulova or other sites.

I would be grateful for any information you can provide. Thanks so much!

Additional Information: 

This is a watch given to me when I was 14 years old in 1956 by my grandfather. It was purchased in the USA. I had it refurbished by Bulova through Gordons Gold in London, Ontario in 2013. It is a self winding, antimagetic, waterproof, shock resistant, 10 kt rolled gold plate. All information as supplied is on the back of the watch. It is Swiss made.  It currently does and always has kept great time. I would welcome any information anyone could provide relative to the model of this timepiece, what it might have cost when new in 1956, etc. I am unable to find this watch in the Bulova archives. This watch has very great sentimental value and I have no intention of selling it..

After over a year of searching for this model on the auction sites, it finally appeared...The 1970 Stainless Steel Bulova Golden Clipper with the Day/Date at the 6:00 position.

It has a 17J 11ANACB automatic movement that is date stamped N1 (which seems to be common with the other two) a Grey dial with White lumed hands and dots above the markers and an applied Black "Bulova" at the 12:00 position.

The case and back which is numbered 786 are Stainless Steel and in super shape and the Stainless Steel Kreisler "Stelux" band looks like it is a match to the ad. It It is a heavy chunky watch compared to its two brothers in the picture. (still hunting for the last one)

And yes bobbee that is one of the 100 Golden Clipper Swords in the background...
