After over a year of searching for this model on the auction sites, it finally appeared...The 1970 Stainless Steel Bulova Golden Clipper with the Day/Date at the 6:00 position.

It has a 17J 11ANACB automatic movement that is date stamped N1 (which seems to be common with the other two) a Grey dial with White lumed hands and dots above the markers and an applied Black "Bulova" at the 12:00 position.

The case and back which is numbered 786 are Stainless Steel and in super shape and the Stainless Steel Kreisler "Stelux" band looks like it is a match to the ad. It It is a heavy chunky watch compared to its two brothers in the picture. (still hunting for the last one)

And yes bobbee that is one of the 100 Golden Clipper Swords in the background...

It looks like this one can now be called the Golden Clipper "J" from an ad that Admin. added to the decades thread...

The "E" might be behind it on the right...

...much nicer and more personal than "1181" .  Good ad searching.  ...and I do love that sword.

'1181' is not a variant.
