What do you guys think of this one? I think it's a "His Excellency" but I haven't found an ad saying that. I found an "Academy Award" with what looked like the same case but it had a four quadrant painted dial. I'm fairly sure this one is all original.

I've got another one with a case like this dated "L2" but it doesn't have the correct movement or dial in it, so I don't know what model it's suppose to be. But I'm 90% sure the one I posted is an original.

Thank you George. I'm not sure if it is original or not. I'm just glad is long enough to fit my wrist. Most of the time the one's I get are too short.
