I don't have an answer on this one but it looks like a split case to me.
The few I have come across that I was not sure 100% if it was a frontloader I would pull the crystal. If the dial is to big to fit out the front the case must have a seam somewhere.
Hope this makes sense.


Thanks Stryfox. JP answered this one as he has the same model (in silver and gold no less) - its a press back.

Just glad to help, Patrick!
Here's a glance at my four Sea Kings, if it helps.

Thank you! I've always considered the Sea Kings as one of my favorite models; it was one of the first handful of watches I bought when i started collecting.

I'm pretty sure the "white" model is just stainless, for the price they were selling in part, but also the way it looks. I have a '58 His Excellency that is white RGP, but I don't think any of these were gold filled that I know of. I'll be happy to double check when I'm back in my office.

I've opened them before, but no picture on hand at the moment. Here's a web picture to show what it will look like, though:
