Additional Information

Here is one I cannot ID.  It certainly appears to be a Sea King but I cannot find the model or variant.  It is a stainless case with a stainless back with an N1 date code.  The movement is a rare 11AN 17J one with an N1 date code and a couple of deep scratches. Shame..  The dial is a gold or champagne color with white hands and applied silver hour markers with white accents.  Also a white cross hair pattern on the dial and white whale.  Super attractive watch.  Interestingly it has no second hand.  It is just a two hander.

Well, I had no luck either. Unusual for a 70's watch not to have a  second hand. It's a nice looker..

There are only 5 other examples of this movement in the database and 4 of them are 1971-73 Sea Kings. Based on dial whale and existing examples in the Db, I could be convinced to call it a tentative Sea King.
