Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with only minor honest wear consistent with age and light use; solid stainless steel case is razor sharp and completely unpolished with the original finishes in tact; crisp screw-down caseback remains clearly legible throughout; beautiful original silver sunburst dial with attractive yellow patina to the Tritium luminous elements; original luminous hands with matching patina; original sweeping-seconds hand exhibits some corrosion; clean original domed acrylic crystal; unworn vintage Caravelle strap

Other: This early "waterproof" Bulova Sea King model is in collector-grade condition and represents tremendous value for under $500. The silver sunburst dial is super cool with oversized numerals and luminous plots along the outer edge - We love the overall simplicity of the design! With an unpolished stainless steel case that slides nicely under the cuff of a shirt or jacket, it can be dressed up or down.
