I don't think the band is the original, because it says "Speidel USA" on each link, and some links are backwards?

Bulova

Additional Information: 

This is the 1968 manual-winding model I don't know nothing about except the case number and year of manufacture. The diameter is 35 mm without crown, upper portion of the case is brushed, bevels on sides and sides themselves are polished. The screw-down back has all the usual writings on it - Waterproof, Stainless Steel Case, Shock Resistant, Anti-Magnetic. Seems to me like one of examples of that outdoor-type wave of watches.

All over a little sweet beater which goes on and on...

The dial is white, marked Bulova and Waterproof, with chrome markers and luminous dots, it has even numbers and markers at the odd. The hands are also luminous.

It has a replacement Bulova black leather band.

When a watch has two different date codes, what year is it identified as? This one has M2 movement and M3 case.

Additional Information: 

Stainless case.  When purchased it had a Speidel stainless strectch band installed.  I looked through the archive ads and couldn't quite find this case/model.  Is this a Sea King, or other model?  I purchased this off the 'Bay, and unfortunately cannot provide any history of the watch.  Unfortunate as well, the watch loses time rapidly, and I've been told there's a problem with the cannon pinion.  I'm looking for a donor movement or to repair. 

EDIT 09.10.2014  Root record changed from 1969 to 1970 based on owner noting date code NO (1970) on case.

Additional Information: 

1971 Bulova 11495-W Sea King "GF" . In original clam shell display case with storage box. The only ID I have on this one comes from the box sticker so I might be tempted to give the "GF" model a tentative rating. It is worth noting however that the original warranty card with serial number is present in the box, all dated 1/6/1972 from the "House of Time" in North Platte, Nebraska. I think that does lend a certain degree of certainty that the box tag notes the correct model number. Silver dial has bright red divisions, wonderful red sweep second hand.

This Bulova watch was my Grandfather's retirement watch from CN Rail.

He was born in 1892 so if he retired at 65 that would suggest a 1957 Bulova watch, but instead the M2 implies 1962.
