Additional Information

 

1969 Bulova Oceanographer 'F'

Case is a one piece all stainless steel, dated M9, case #2891 from W Germany; uses a split-stem and is top loading (crystal must be removed); signed crown is partially hidden; white dial with calendar window; movement is a manual winding Swiss-made 11BLCD; band came on the watch and is not a match to the ads, so likely not original, but is a Bulova band.

Ad collage from 1969/1970, with a snipet from an Oceanographer case info sheet.
