I'm thinking with a textured lug area like that, it might be made to match the bracelet.

Thank God the ad hasn't got this band on! AND the Good Reverend was close about the band.

September 1966 ad, the American Eagle.

Good find Bobbee!  The texture of the lugs sure seems to match subject watch...as does the stylized 12!  Nice
EDIT:  I vote for an American Eagle based on above....even if I went with tentative two ticks, it's a good call in my book.

And the three and nine, and crosshair subseconds dial and hands, Will.

Here's the only issue with newspaper ads, they just don't show the fine detail we need on SOME ID's. I wish the ad confirmed the texture on Jerin's dial although it does want to be there in the ad.

I'll go along with the AE ID on this "blue banded beauty".
