The case serial is only six digits, indicating you are using the one from outside.

Please take pics of the case back and the inside case back if possible Jim.

To date the watch correctly, you need to look on the inside of the case back, and find the seven digit case serial number stamped there.

Nice watch Jim.

What is interesting to note is the use of raised numbers Vs the lumed numbers. We have yet to really establish the change over period, other than to say that the painted lumed version came first.

Bulova Sky King is most certainly is (Version 1 case, but not neccessarily version one model which I believe came with the lumed pained numbers and hands)
