First off, sorry about the pics. The picture size limits here are strict and my photo resizer for my Note is not very good. I have what I think is part of the "His Excellency " collection.  Am I right? Got this for $20 at a thrift shop. May need a new crystal and will need a service. Fully wound, this thing ran for a total 43 hrs and 40 mins and 3 minutes slow. Not bad!!

you watch looks like HE "EW" at least as regards the case, dial is opposed to expectations in black color

I agree, it's an His Excellency. I don't think I'll go with the "EW" variant as to the dial difference though.

Killer deal for $20! I would say HE also, no variant at this point.

Agree with His Excellency, unable to narrow down a variant for this style.

His Excellency works for me.  No indication what the "charcoal dial" variant would be, and to guess at a variant designation based on possible patterns in other contemporary watches with two or three letter variants would still be a guess.  So generic "HE" for now.

Here's a better pic of the dial and movement.
