Any info about this watch would be appreciated

I tried to get the back off, but i suspect this is through the crystal opening.

The Bezel is a press fit. The Caseback, Movement and Glass  come out as an assemblly. Try holding the lugs in each Hand and press on the glass with Your thumbs, it should start to move.

Watertite style Case, but this is possibly the 'SEA BEE' or 'SURFMASTER' ?

Same case but different dials. 2 tick for Surf King until we see a 1960 ad.

I think fifth Avenue has a surf king with matching dial to ad. I also think that record has case dimensions. new York cat could you enter the case dimensions of your watch and we can narrow this ID down?

five folks for "Surf King"  I think most are saying "two ticks tentative". 
JP, Will, Bobbee, Darhin, Fifth.
