Additional Information

Recently aquired this watch. Dont know much about this watch other than what i think i might be which im guessing is a Sea Clipper? I find it odd that the case has a 1966 (M6) case marking and the movement has 1967 (M7) date code.  Anyone know is it only an automatic or is it also a winder?

You can also hand wind these automatics. 

These are in-house Bulova Swiss movements. 

Looks like  a Jet Clipper to me, we have another one here:

My feeling is that by 1967 this became the Date King 'U'. The identical Jet Clipper 'I' was through 1964; Date Kings appeared around 64/65 and continued.
