Additional Information

This is what I believe is a 1969 Oceanographer "B" with stainless case and slate grey dial.   The case back is marked M9 and is quite scratched.   THe movement is a 11BLACD and is marked M9 also.  Inside the case back is embossed "W. GERMANY" with a stamp of "N2892".  I was told the fluted bezel is 10KT white gold but do not see this as advertised in the ads so probably unlikely.  I really love this watch.  Fits better than my Rolex and the beveled crystal adds a great dimension to the watch face.  Ocassionally stops so I will be sending this one in for service.  I don't to kill the hairspring on this one as I have done on soooo many bulovas lately.

...and now you even know what the original band looks like  :-)

Just think for an extra $10 the original owner could have had the "G" model.
