Sorry, posting this a second time. I'm hoping the mods can remove the first. 

Recent purchase. It's my birth-year watch. It's currently in my brother's possession in Canada while I'm in India. I'll pick it up at Christmas. 

I love the look of this watch, and it fits the description of the Sea King from the 1972 catalog here(1972 Bulova Advertisement 5261 - screen capt'd and added). The only thing it's missing is the little whale on the dial. (Not sure if it is actually missing, or if it's a 'redial')

I'll update the info here once I have it in hand.

Case shape: 
Round
Case Manufacturer:

Additional Information: 

10K RGP 30.8mm case with stainless flush back and bezel snap ring around crystal.  Case back dated L3. I am assuming this is a front load case.  It appears to have never been opened. My guess is 17J as the face isn't marked with jewel count. Glossy smooth black face with gold arrow markers, numbers, second hash marks and hands. Bulova signature is also in gold print . Dots and tiny arrowheads on hands appear to have been lumed. Interesting stepped double lugs. Runs and keeps time. Minor plating loss on lug high points.  Shiney black face and a polished crystal made this one difficult to photograph.

Searched the database and found nothing. Hopefully it's in here somewhere and I missed it.

Additional Information: 

My best guess is a variant of the Sea Cloud but I couldn't find an exact match in the models or the ads uploaded. Front loader so unable to give movement info. I made the mistake of winding this on a cold winter morning straight out of the postmans hands because I was too excited to wait, it may be coincidence but something broke whilst winding so it's a non runner.
