Welcome wiston on myBulova, your watch looks like Data King "E" similar as this, there is discussion about this model ID

Welcome wisrton, nice old Bulova you have here.

Everything on this watch, other than the hands which are slightly different, is a match. I'm going along with the Date King E ID.

I think it's a Date King 'E' also, maybe the hands were swapped at some point.

The 'E' variant is a white/ss case based on the $79.95 price in this 1965 ad and the 1964 pricelist shows no other Date King model at the $79.95 price - only the 'E'; that variant also uses the linen dial, which this watch does not appear to have. I would vote unknown-variant Date King based on that info and the discussion with this matching 1965 watch in the database.

Date King for sure, scratch the 'E'.

I wouldn't rule out it being a Bulova President variant either. What is the case back stamped?

In this advert is President aka Data King "H" in 14k solid yellow gold, but subject watch evidently has stainless steel case back
