Case sure looks like this 1952 President in watch database. Geoff has this 1953 white dial example.
And here's a 1952 ad showing the "D" with a black dial.

The subject watch dial looks redone as original (or close).
I'm good with President "D" ID

No Markings on the back of the dial, assuming it's original

You bet Darren, Also think it's still a good idea to put the actual crystal measurment's in the description.
