If my memory serves me, I'm thinking "Neptune" but I'll have to look at the ads again to be certain.

That would be great. I have a bunch more to post so I guess I had better get going.

Neptune is stated to have 21J.

I agree with Plains a Phanton "A" or "C". I'm not 100% what is meant by "yellow, white dial". Does it mean yellow gold case with white dial, or is the dial yellow and white as in stripped.

I think it's the Phantom as well.

'PHANTOM'

the way I read the linked ad is as follows:

'A' - White Case, White Dial. (as shown)

'B' - White Case, Charcoal Dial.

'C' - Yellow Case, White Dial.

'D' - Yellow Case, Charcoal Dial.

Ah, upon looking at the advert again I would agree with you. I missed the first mention of "white" at the top.

Phantom "A" (looks to be white gold filled case)

Interesting, does white also then refer to stainless steel?
