Sea King from me.  I'd go two ticks tentative. So a 1966 date based on movement date symbol?

Shall we update date of production to 1966 based on movement date code of M6?

Thank you to all that commented.  I appreciate the identification.   I bought this watch because it is the same model of watch that my grandfather had worn. My cousin has that one but this is just as nice.

Should you ever need help with a Gruen watch; that is my main focus and will do what I can. You can easily find me through that 'Gruen-centric' watch forum.

Cheers!
