It is in lovely shape now, nice job!  Looks like a Sea King but I am wondering about the date.  Does the back of the case have a letter/number combo like L9 or L8 etc?  Do you happen to have a photo of the movement?

No photo of the movement. No markings of L9 or L8 that I can see. Ill take and post more pictures soon.

Yes if you could post a clear photo of the back of the case that would be most helpful.

Agree with Sea King. A few possible variants [(CW, DW Strap Versions)( EW, FW Exp Band Versions)]; not sure which of the variants are yellow or white case or if watch had the expansion band originally.
