Yea that's a close one.  Case looks like both the Ambassador "F"  and the Banker above.   Stylized numersals on dial like Banker dial, but sans the diamonds...

I don't remember how we got the "F" variant associated with this record, but it's there now.....I think the "F" case is slightly diff than the other variants in the Ambassador ad linked near top of comments, and we ID'ed based on this unique case difference- not gold color or dial.
