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.
