Here is a seldom seen Date King model that I find only in linebook 165 for 1967. The dial is one I have never seen and after manipulating the linebook photo, the horizontal lines across the dial are visible. As far as I can see, this case style was used for 2 models, The "AR" and "AQ". We have a single example of the gold dial "AR", and now it's brother with silver dial. Both are case dated 1966 with 1967 dated movements .
1966 Date King "AQ" Currently wound tight, but balance appears good.
Hmmm, I'm on the fence with the "AQ" variant. Yes it certainly looks like a redial, but would this affect the variant if the "AQ" was this exact case style and color?
I think the linebook is a good reference to help future IDs, but can agree that the generic Bulova Date King works here.
After close re-examination, yes, there appears to be a very tiny notch in the dial at "3". I initially thought it was a finish chip. Good eye, Ken. However, if the only 2 models of Date King in this case this year were determined by dial color (gold or silver), does a redial in one of the 2 colors negate the variant? Just thinking out loud.
