I'm thinking this one is part of the Sea King line, possibly the 'B' variant.

You may have it. As I looked through the database here, I didn’t see a 1971 like this. Btw, I should have said in my description black/gold hands with lumin inserts.

Looking through a 1971 line book I have access to and the Sea King "B" seems to be the best match to the subject watch. The 'E" variant is also close but looked to come on a leather band.

1971 Bulova Sea King "B".

1971 Sea King "B".

I suspect the cut-outs in the lugs were caused by a replacement band with spring loaded lugs (like the band currently shown on it) wearing notches over time.
