    Wonderful!

    And I forgot to mention how much I like your BOR bracelet.. fab :thumbsup: !!

    Were you able to determine yours as a 1967 based on movement number , or just a ballpark based on the model? I know almost nothing about Bulova specifics ...

    Great question! So, let's have a look. 1st at the case back. Mine is labeled M6 (1966)
    [​IMG]
    Now let's look at the movement. Mine is M7 (1967).
    [​IMG]
    Given the movement is the more recent of the two, I assume it's a 1967, probably produced in very early '67 with stock of '66 cases still being used-up at the time.

    Of course, the back may have been changed at some point, but given how close the two dates are, and the matching patina, I suspect it's more a production overlap.

    Hope that helps!!! @Archer knows quite a bit about these and may be able to lend more info as well!

    Great information!

    They're cool little Divers. About the same time I got my black one, I saw this white one while I was in Hong Kong, and had to make a matching pair:
