Can you advise the model number inside the case....is it 708 ?

You'll need a crystal press to help remove the crytsal.

Could be case#706 - if so, Oceanographer 'E'

My Oceanographer above used a full round bezel ring, but has the same case underneath.

Oceanographer was certainly my first impression as well.

I apologize, I should have included all relevant information. 

Case markings include the following:


CB, 706, Swiss


Bulova, 79299, M8, Shock resistant, Anti-magnetic, Waterproof, and Stainless steel case

I finally figured out how to open it. All you have to do is drop it. The line across the middle going sideways marks each half of the case. I was fitting different bands to see which I might like best, dropped it and it popped open. Bulova dive watch opened

You guys have outdone, yourselves again!

I can find everything I need to build it out, the dial, movement everything. 

I will submit my watch once it has been completed. 

Thank you once again.
