Additional Information

 

1972 Bulova

Stainless one-piece case dated N1, made in Taiwan; movement and dial are accessed through the top after removing the crystal and stem; movement is the 11ANC 17-jewel dated N2; gray Bulova band added and matches the colorful dial well; I cannot find any ads to give us a model name, but would only guess it is from the Sea King line.

I like it. Bulova did some unusual styles in the 70's, this is one. I wonder what the Taiwan connection is though, is there a mark somewhere?

I've speculated in the past that Bulova made models for three different markets, the Americas, the Pacific Rim and Europe and, at some level kept them separate.
