Additional Information

Here's one that I was going to post but it got lost in the shuffle last year. I did the service on it and replaced the crystal and polished the case, and put on a new band. It was in the store maybe two weeks before it sold. 

Really clean example of an Oceanographer. Unfortunately I didn't get a pic of the inside caseback at the time. 

N0 for the case, N2 for the movt.

Oceanographer like this, the question is whether in 1970 or 1972

It is just possible that the movt has been replaced,  I'm leaning to call it by what it says on the back: 1970.

Hmmm, I'm torn on the date with this one as I cannot see Bulova producing a 1970 case and then jumping into their time machine to go and get a 1972 movement, so I would have to say that the movement is a non-original.

Either way I'd say a 1970 Bulova Oceanographer...and a really nice one at that.
