    Thank for the picture Dillworth. That is an interesting dial variant I haven't seen. I scrolled through quite a few pictures on google and could not find another. There is another rare variant with different hands including the lollipop hand. Very similar to the bulova automatic variant. The dial is swiss marked and has different lume. I would probably buy one of these if a really nice/clean example came up for a good price:

    The discoloration on the bezel is common, but your dial is different, that’s for sure. We still don’t have a really good list of what the “options” were from the parts bin for these model years. Mine is from 69 and appears to be original. It had never been serviced when I sent it in.

    Any idea what year this is? I’m wondering if that’s an identifier for handsets.

    I didn't see the year. The tritium lume version of the deep sea is only with swiss marking, so probably exclusive to europe. There are some rare tritium dauphine hands, so I don't know why they didn't use those.

    It almost didn't make it here. The seller never uploaded a tracking number. After dealing with ebay to resolve it they finally shipped the item and it arrived today. The illusive swiss tritium deep sea has finally arrived:
