 Anyone ever seen one of these before? Based on this ad, it would appear to be a 1949 (case and movement) His Excellency "XX" white gold plate variant sporting yellow gold gilt numerals and hands. Signed 4 times.

Ad makes no mention of face color choice (black vs. silvered), so is this an XX standard configuration for the variant "V54R 1005 White", or something else? Watch is pretty good physical condition but a non-runner. Appears to have a bad balance staff or related jewel. Mounted on a crispy leather band as found.

No, unfortunately not. I would think these lists were fairly common place, which makes me wonder why more of them have not surfaced.
