desirable watch, M9 is 1969 - retail usually 120-200

A little outside my time-of-interest, but I believe that the "40" would indicate the thickness of the plating and "SAD" would be the case manufacturer.

Nice watch.

Yes. At a guess I would say that it indicates 40 micron gold plate...

This is my favorite watch bulova 1969. Were is cool model https://www.pinterest.com/pin/560276009873890665/. I think a classic watch - best model on all time. Bulova Precisionist watches are the most accurate out there. In this article http://jonsguide.org/best-top-bulova-pr ... s-reviews/ i founde best Bulova Precisionist.
