Not sure if the movt is based on anything, but the simplicity of the date mechanism is refreshing to say the least.

Hello!

i have a Bulova Snorkel but i don't find any Informations about this modell. I think it is a 666 but it is not like the pictures that you find at the internet. You see the bezel insert is completly blue and there is no 666 at the dial.

 

Unfortunately the back cover is polished :-/

can everyone tell me more about this watch?

 

Thanks

Additional Information: 

This is my first vintage Bulova watch, I bought it on eBay a few days ago. I haven't opened it yet so I'm not really sure what movement it has. The back has "M9" stamped on it so I believe it's from 1969. The back also has "To: William C. Marsh Jr. From: Kellwood Office 1-22-71" engraved on it. The watch is a little dirty and will need a good cleaning. So far it's keeping great time. It has a Speidel stretch band on it with a little calendar built in. The last month on the calendar is December 1975. Something that sets this one apart from the others is I noticed it doesn't have the date on the dial, I haven't seen any other Oceanographer that didn't have that. If anyone knows anything more about this watch I would love to know thank you.
