this is a fun one, disagree with the 'PRESIDENT' ID - 'PRESIDENT' was 30 Jewels in 1965.

'DATE KING', 'SEA KING' ect. IMO

Can We see the Caseback?

Ok,

 

   I do agree with you guys. If you look at the 1st add in the database, the red backround add, You see the President "O" Iwas reffering from, and can see why I thought it was a president. It does not say "thirty jewels on it " and I did not know that they changed that later on.

Earlier Date King sans whale on the dial?  The whale appeared on various models around 1970?  (guessing here?).  Not too much of a "fiasco" , just the process at work.
