NIce watch, excellent movement. I'd be inclined to go with Date King.

As we've been discussing re-dials lately, I think this is an example of a good candidate. Personal preference, of course, but if it were mine I would do it.

Date King by all means, I would ad the "PG" varian (and a round trip to International Dial).

It appears to me that the dial in the supporting ad (from 1965) is one that is 2-tone with contrasting stripe (panelled) down the middle; similar to this watch in a 1966 ad and this President "I" from 1964; also, the "PG" states Yellow, whereas this watch is stainless.

Is there a clear distinction between Date Kings and Presidents shown the mid-60s ads; so many look identical?

you're right that these watches are not in yellow version President is also in yellow   regarding the dial on the attached adv does not declared a duo tone due to poor copy of it may be the noise in the image   2-tone diale have variant PS http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1966-date-king-1841

Ken - I think you're on to something. My first reaction to your "could this be a President' question was that President didn't come in 30 J  - - - BUT THEY DID. Recognizing the two tone dial of the the Date King I'm pulling my vote on that ID, this is not a Date King PG. I have to to poke at this a bit again.

ID to be determined......

1964 is the crossover period.

Some ads say Date King, some for same model say President.

The ads show a shaded dial for this dial type, all yellow.

I would go Date King, no variant.
