It is hard to tell from the photos, but it appears the case is stamped on the back with the date code of M7 (1967); I cannot tell what the datestamp on the movement is, could you confirm? The ads call for one diamond, could you also confirm if there is only one diamond?

This appears to be a yellow gold case with white gold surrounding the diamond. There are several ads showing this as the First Lady A or B. Not sure if A was the yellow gold version or B was. Looks to have originally been fitted with a cord bracelet.

This watch appears to have changed to the Miss Liberty around 1969

Well, I think the 23 jewels changes this potential ID of First Lady A or B, since this style came in 17 Jewels around this time period. The First Lady line did have 23 Jewel movements as well, but I don't see any other matches, Unknown at this time.

I'm at Unknown now too, but checking the 1960-1969 newspaper ads by decade forum thread.
