Nice one Michael. I'm not sure any of the His Excellency models were delivered with a black dials but I like the combination of yellow gold and a black dials.

I agree that this one is 'His Excellency'

I had a hard time finding a His Exc ad with black dial from this era; though the case style pre-47 was called the Statesman and there was an ad for a white gold black dial version.
