Additional Information: 

This belongs to a fellow watchmaker I met in Cincinnati recently and the pictures really don't do it justice. I had a pic of the caseback and hence the serial number and/or date, but I have lost it somehow. It's a good example of a customized dial Bulova, and fully serviced, of course!

I'll see if I can get the caseback markings to complete this record.

1969 Bulova Sea King 'EX'

All stainless steel case and caseback, dated M9; case number 2920; dial has black lettering with luminous hands and dots, black second hand; movement is a manual-wind 11BLC 17-jewel dated M9.

The case is unusual to me, as it does not accept spring bars. The band fits in an opening and is held in by the overlay of the bezel and caseback.

Ad is dated 1969

Additional Information: 

I picked this up for $1 at an estate sale and would like to know a little more about it if possible. I know nothing about vintage watches & the little research I've done it looks as though this could be fake since there is no Bulova logo on the dial? In case you can't see the pics well, the back shows Bulova, M1 for 1961, Stainless Steel Back, 10 kt RGR Bezel, Anti-Magnetic, Water Proof, & Patent #2,913,869. It is in pretty rough shape & I wasn't able to remove the back. Is this even a genuine Bulova & if so can anyone identify it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
