Hi all

I would appreciate any members help in trying to identify this watch it is marked M6 on both the movement and case back the case is also marked  Bulova 10K RGP Bezel. St/Steel back. The crown is stamped with the bulova symbol . The nearest model ive found so far that looks something like this one is the Date King , but of course this one does not have the date window on it.

I'm not sure when, but I think there are some resoruces on site (or some members have documents) which list some case number ink stamps which cross-reference to model name(s) or at least crystal specs, which may then be cross-referenced to model names as per crystal catalogs.

I'm good with Prince for ID.

I am good with Prince. My case referencing resources turned up nothing to add to the identifying.
