There it is - the one regret I have from my Bulova period years ago. Never did get that Sea King. :sad:

Ah, I'll just wear Greg's next time I head north! :sneaky2: Problem solved. :laugh::laugh:

I have wanted one of these little gems for a LONG time.
I always liked the simple lines and cool "Whale" on the dial.
Gorgeous watch. I don't think that's actually a sea king though; note how the box talks about the sea king being "super thin"; not something typically used to describe an automatic. The whale logo was used extensively in the 70s (you don't mention the year of yours), especially across the clipper and oceanographer lines.

Hamilton thin-o-matics, and all the thin Eterna-matics from this period disagree. Although I see where you are coming from, presumably the paperwork confirms it all.
Ahhhhh....

The Plot thickens:wink:

I will add more later, good eyes guys.

The Bulova version of that was the Ambassador; I've been looking for one of those for a while now, but the price always climbs too high.

Check out mybulova.com... an amazing bulova site!

Google Image Result for http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/watches/!B3TjoWwEGk~$(KGrHqZ,!h4E)ql(1bFZBMlst96yvg~~_12.JPG?1291387829

Here is almost the exact same watch with "Sea King" on the dial!

Mine is also 1969 marked M-9...

Hummm?
I can up the confusion for you; check the 1972 ad here:
http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/Bulova_AD_1972_1.jpg

The last watch on the second row is identified in the pictures as a "Clipper Y", but it also seems to say "Sea King" on the dial.
