1968 Bulova Date King 'NO'

Case is 10K Y RGP with stainless steel back, case number 2520, dated M7; dial is a gold color with black Roman Numeral markers and black hands; movement is a Swiss-made 11ALCD, manual-wind 17-jewel, dated M8; has the original expansion band that matches the ads.

Set of ads from 1967/1968. The Date King line looks to have come to an end by the late 60s, and I do not find this particular model in other lines. This design in automatic form is also seen in the Clipper line.

Additional Information

Possible Bulova Date King "NQ"

10K Yellow RGP case with stainless back dated N1; white dial with calendar window and sub-seconds hand; 11BLD movement also dated N1.

Similar to the PA variant, but with different lugs. NQ ads state silver dial, and I am not sure if the color of this dial is considered silver or white.

So this looks just like the '66 Date King, but not the same movement. The back has M9 so I'm guessing a 1969 Date King. Could not find the movement listed on Watchophilia database. 17 jewel 11 BLD, sub dial, 10k RGP and stainless back. I'm stumped.

Thanks in advance to all the experts.
