Additional Information

I’m stumped here. This little beauty measures 31 x 37 mm with 16 mm between the lugs. The caseback shows N0 but the movement shows N1. As you can see in the photos, the crown is not original. I couldn’t find any ads or watches in your archives that looked like it. Is it a men’s or ladies? Please help me identify.

I found the watch in the 1970 Line Book BAWD0175 Page 31 of 81.  Slightly different wording on the dial and a whale.  Yes it is a men's watch during the period when watches were getting larger so they made both smaller and larger watches for men.

Sea King 'DL' looks to be a good match.

Previous model name was the Sea Flight
