very nice   3 stars for his excellency....now if there's a "his excellency" "L" or "NE" or what ever is in the hard to read ad above, then that may be a different story.   ...and those subtle "charcoal dial in yellow gold"..... a ten dollar upgrade!

Ah, snagged another of the 23j His Excellencies, I see!  I really like this series!   Mine wears like a smaller watch, despite its diameter - it's easily the largest wrist watch in my collection.

I do find, however, that many of the examples I see have brassing where the stem enters the case, and that itty bitty crown makes them a PITA to wind! 

Are you going to look for the original bracelet?

John,

It's appearance has changed a little since We received it. Someone had incorrectly lumed the tips of the Hands at some point through the Years which was flaking off and had to be removed, Movement has been fully serviced and the Case cleaned and polished. Glass Crystal is N.O.S. - these are really great Watches.
