Nice watch and a good call on the ID. I'll agree, it's a good ad match to the 1966 President "I"

EDIT:

New found confirmation of name change prior to 1966. Based on ad below

It's a 1966 Date King "PG"

I found a 1966 ad matching  for this watch and bracelet. Please look at the watch in the bottom left corner.  The previous identification was based on 1964 ads and information. It looks like Bulova renamed this model in 1966 to a Date King PS, Let me know your thoughts.  Please change the name if you agree. Thanks.

I think you are onto something,   According to the 1966 Linebook BAWD0162-2 there appears to have been a name change.  The line book lists this as a 1966 Bulova Date King "PG".  I think this one should have the name changed to align with the 1966 line book.

I would agree with the Date King 'PG' identification. The calendar Presidents seem to be a short-lived model in 1964; and changing to Date King thereafter.
