Hi,  Was unable to identify if this is a Clipper or Sea King.  N1 date code on case and movement.  Stainless case.  Thanks.

Rather distinct case and dial. The Clipper line would be automatic based, so we can rule out that line.

Your dial looks similar to this Sea King, and although I cannot find any ads to match, I would guess your watch also falls under the Sea King line.

Good work Ken, dial is a great match to Geoff's Sea King suggestion a different variant based on the case.

I agree this is likely a variant of the Sea King, but find no documentation confirmation.

The dial certainly is a match to the linked Sea King. I'm holding out for something of a closer match, for now, 1971 Bulova Unknown
