Added new pic of watch, cleaned up and with NOS 60's Moroccan leather band. This is a nice watch, and has become a favorite of mine. Too bad there's not a single advert I can find that shows it.

I actually took a stab at redoing the crystal last night, and had some luck getting it less scratched and foggy. I'll try to post better pics when I can.

Case and movement identical, face is slightly different.

Mike, that's a completely different watch, look at imposition of the crown, not identical case and dial has a completely different symbols

this watch we have had here and I've seen them several times on eBay

Ah, you're right about the case. It looked similar at first. No matter, there were a lot of Sea King variants, and this is still likely one of those. At least I got the back off so we know the movement and jewel count.
