Good ad match J. I'd agree with Date King 'M'. This is the only one I have found so far with that distinctive 12.

Welcome to mybulova Joenewman89. I really like the mid 60's dials with the "Deco Retro" numbers.

Thank you all for identifying this, it's a gift from my Grandad, he took it to have the battery changed years ago and he believes they swapped the strap without his knowledge. Does anyone know what it's value is today?

Hi Joe, sorry to have missed your question. Unfortunately we are not qualified to appraise watches, there are just too many factors. If you asked my wife, she will agree as she thinks that I generally pay MUCH MORE for them than they're worth!
