Additional Information: 

I think this is our first watch in the database that matches with the ad.  Hunters Orange dial on this guy... super distinct and I believe only in 1969.  Really sweet light blue world bezel on a stainless steel case.

The waterproof gasket had gone to the darkside and turned into absolute tar when I opened the back.  Took quite awhile to clean it off.

I believe this to be the 1969 Sky Star

I'm debating on it Geoff... it's a bit on the rare side as it was only made in 69, but maybe that makes it profitable!  Haha....

Very cool 1969 SkyStar with Orange dial; is that the original band?

Sky Star gets my vote. This was a popular model, and various companies were doing them at the time, many had the orange dial.
