Hope you can get the back off and get more info on movement type and jewel count etc.... Looks like Surf King w/ slightly different numbers on dial than I remember.

So here we have a three check confirmed Surf King Model ID rating, with the record indicationg an unknown movement and a jewel count of 7.  Without guidelines of what information constitutes confirmed, or how a confirmed three checks is assigned, I guess we rely on the link to Model ID rating explained (below)

Model Rating
A select group of panel members are able to rate the identification of a vintage Bulova watch. Ratings are:

•1 Tick = Model identification not confirmed by the majority of panel members
•2 Ticks = Model identification tentative by the majority of panel members
•3 Ticks = Model identification confirmed by the majority of panel members

Is it confirmed based on opinions, or as evidenced by something...say an ad, or a matching jewel count?  Please let me know if/how I can help with this issue- if it's even considered an issue to others.  Perhaps a set of working definitions which are more spicific than above?   ...onto which side of the coin do we wish to fall?
