I'm not sure this watch was properly vetted and I'm not sure it's a Sea King. What ad was used to ID? Like Jerin, I don't see it either.

ad Dated 1961

the Case lugs of the subject are coming up a bit short.

Sorry, I don't see this watch in that ad. This ad appears to be introducing new watches for 1961. Unknown - moving to reopen record.

although an exact match is not shown in the 1961ad, the subject has the characteristics of the 'SEA KING'.

The ad shows 6 Models but then states there were 12 (new in addition to theire predecessors?)

OT has a 1959 'SEA KING' in the database, Case diameter and design comparisons could help.

Possibly a Sea King, but no matches found.

Unknown.

Bummer, I have one too dated 1960 N0. Has the whale and the words Sea King Automatic on the dial. Haven't found an ad for it either.

Just haven't time. I have several to post and am planning on doing it later this week. I recently bought a Rubiyat and a Lady Maxim and am awaiting the Lady Maxim to post them as well. I have been working at my part time job a little more than usual lately so I have been cutting back on the watch work.
