Additional Information

 This one appears to be right on the edge of a name change. Sea King "BW". Watch is dated 1969. Per ads in the Db, it was the Clipper "A" until 1967, and re-appears in 1969 as the SK "BW". with changes in face and case text. Face marked "T Swiss Made T" and sports lumed hands and numbers. Referenced ad is dated 1969, same as the watch.

Sea King "BW" listed in 1969 as "Automatic"and "Water Resistant".

I agree with this one being the Sea King 'BW' in 1969. Clipper 'A' in ads ends in 67.

Cool. If general consensus is Sea King BW, that makes this a first for the database.
