Very nice example of the 1969 Bulova Oceanographer G. Thanks for sharing it Joe.

I love the way Bulova incorporated their B into the self winding rotor.

What is the thoughts of the panel about the text on the dial? 

3 lines of text at the top of the dial, 2 at the bottom. Is that something exclusive to 1969? I can't find dials similar from any other year.
