Additional Information: 

These are the sellers pics.  I picked this up tonight.  

Looks to me like a heretofore unseen Diamond Excellency "Variant".  It's a perfect match for the round ad we have down to the diamond plating look on the bezel.  Now... if that band isn't original it's an absolute perfect match for this watch!

Close, but subject watch bezel is slightly different. Look at the thickness. Advert seems to show two circular designs, outer and inner. Subject watch only looks to have one.

OR, is the inner circular design part of the crstal, which looks like may not be present on the subejct watch? In which case its the watch but with the wrong crystal.

would agree the ad is showing a 'faceted Crystal' (as described) making the bezel appear wider.

'DIAMOND EXCELLENCY' unknown variant.
