I don't find an advert to back up the Date King name. Looks like a Golden Clipper variant.

The 1969 Bulova ads "number 11" watch has a very similar case design and hands.

Peter - that is a beauty. Looks brand spanking new to me. I don't think it's the watch pictured in the 1967 ad referenced above although the band is identical. Short of a new ad surfacing I would have to vote Unknown on this one.

Can't find this one in the ads.
Unknown from me.   Looks like a brand new 42 year old watch!

  I know the date is out,  but the President "B" looks almost identical apart from the whale sign, hour markers and hands!

Another beauty Peter, and I love the mellow patination of the dial/hands. Outstanding.

Good chance this is a "Golden Clipper" if the movement is a Gold plated  17J 11ANACD.

Golden Clipper, unknown variant is my call.

Nice clean watch Peter!

I want one of those swords, bet they can't be found.

They actually pop up on ebay ever now and now. I recall seeing two over the last five years.
