Did you notice that non of the ads nor linebooks for the 68-70 Oceanographers have "Oceanographer" under "Bulova" that actual production models have. There are also other dial variances too on the bottom half of the dial:   "Super Waterproof" vs 333 Feet vs just a blank spot:

Yes I finally noticed this too about a week ago. Had never noticed the 'Super Waterproof' text before,

Note also the green lume on the hour markers. 

1968 Bulova Oceanographer "H" and what an amazing example.

Early models, around 1968, had the Super Waterproof, but I believe that was replaced with the depth as 333 feet once stating 'waterproof' became more regulated.

Nice example...Oceanographer 'H'
