1969 Bulova Sea King “Whale”
First up this week we have this slick vintage Bulova Sea King. I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved the little whale logo on these Sea King models. Maybe because it’s so darn cute. Anyways, the rest of the watch is pretty spiffy too. The steel case with screw on back and fancy lugs are excellent and look like maybe it’s had a very light polish in its life. Seller doesn’t state the size, but from my experience I’d guess it’s between 32 and 34mm wide. Seller does state that it runs and keeps time. The dial looks perfect and original, and has a fantastic radial brushed finish to go along with the applied steel Bulova logo and stick markers. The lume filled dauphine hands are also excellent. Really sweet classically styled dress watch that should go for an affordable price.
