Found this Bulova on the internet. It looks to be in good shape, but it had no watch band,  So I bought a vintage band from the same time period that had not been used. I believe it is a Sea King, but i'm not sure. It has a 10KT RGP case and Bulova written on the crown. Thanks for looking!

A member has a similar watch - Sea King AK

Mr. Wangbow's 69 Sea King AK has a face structure which is the same as mine; however, mine has the whale and Bulove written on the crown.

I've seen them with nothing on the bottom as in the watch above. I have seen them say automatic with a whale, just the whale and waterproof - What do you think?

 

Is this indeed a Sea King AK?

Sea King "AK" works for me. We see a variety of dial variations that show or don't show the whale, and I don't know if it is possible to pinpoint which years had it.

I took the watch to my jeweler and we got a picture of the inside;however, we found that the two part stem is starting to go - looks like I see a repair in the future.
