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!

Thank you in advance for your opinions on my Grandfather's watch. I don't have anything to add about the watch that cannot be seen in the pictures other than at the bottom of the face is printed "T SWISS T" .   I found someone posting a Bulova for sale on an auction site that seemed identical to mine, other than it having a speidel bracelet. The following is his description.    "Vintage 1971 hand wound bulova men's watch. Running conditions. 17 jewels. Very nice silvertone dial. The first Bulova i've seen with a dial this color. It must be rare. Between a silver to grey with purpleish blue hue. Marked "Bulova TSwissT" on face and marked "11 ANC" on movement."   I have not had the back opened on my watch (is it a screw off?) so I don't know about the "11 ANC" , or the jewel count, otherwise it sounds and looks just like mine.  Again, thank you for any help in identifying this model as I have come up empty.   Bryan Peterson.
