Other: "Should you own a watch that can go places you can't? The Bulova Oceanographer "M" will run at 666 feet under the sea. And at Himalayan altitudes. And beyond." What a great advertisement from Bulova! This rare Oceanographer "M" variation was only produced for one year (1969), making it all the more desirable. Everything about it is fantastic and it's the perfect summer or vacation watch. Check out the vibrant blue and red colors on the original acrylic dive bezel. The metallic dial is mesmerizing. And a pop of red color from the date wheel is the cherry on top.
