Did the "EU" only come in White as mine is yellow gold tone?

Are the hands yellow? If so, perhaps not original with a stainless case in 1968.

Nice looking watch. Sea King 'EU'

Gotcha; the case looks stainless, but I see electroplate stamped on the back now.

I rescind my vote for 'EU', which is a stainless model

I think we have this wrong.   Esrun59 says the case is yellow.  I should have caught that with the 10KT Rolled Gold Plate case back. Therefore I believe this is a 1969 Sea King "F" based on the 1969 LineBook listing.

You are absolutely correct Jim. I dropped the ball on this one initially and agree with you.. It looks White on my monitor and I also missed the stainless / plate discrepancy. Now confirmed as Yellow by owner, it's a 

Sea King "F".
