Couldn't find it in the full ads, but looks to me like it could be a Sea King. Still looking.

Wow...This is so thrilling to be able to share it with you.    I have listed all of my Bulova's but two.  I seem to have had a few unusual ones.   Love it.  I am going dig thru the pile of parts watches, movements and cases to see what I have.

Thank you.  I have them all listed except my 64 spaceview which is a conversion and a bunch of ladies watches.  I have to say this site has ignited my appreciation of Bulova watches.  It is intersting to see the ads with the original prices.  I had one Bulova from 1949 that showed a $79.50 price.  When I looked up todays dollars it was $831!  Bulova's were not cheap in their day.
