One of the features in the Sea King line was a luminous dial and hands. Your watch doesn't appear to be luminous? The watch does have an International flair or look about it, and there does not appear to be an import code on the movement.

Can you tell us if there is an import code, would likely be BXW?

Also, is there a code stamped or engraved on the inside of the caseback?

I could not find this case or design in the ads, leaning towards Unknown model name at this time.The band looks period, and may very well be original.

Nice and unique case detail.  Do you have the jewel count?  I can't make it out in the photo.

AM is probably Arthur Miserez, of Saignelégier, Switzerland.

Updated the watch to 1960 based on the 'M0' date stamp on the case.

Cannot find any match. Looks to be an international model.

Unknown for me for now.

Sea King may still be an option. The "I" variant looks close.

Can you please confirm the M0 stamp is not a M8 stamp.
