Nice "23" model likely?

Can you please also confirm this is a mens watch in your comments, I know it is, you know it is, but some people do not agree with me....that age old "its to small to be a mans watch".....errrr no, not a vintage one.....

Not a Bulova "23" as they did not have a calendar window (but for the 1950's Calendar "23"), and ended in 1963/64.

Not a Regatta as those lacked a calendar window too.

Possibly an unknown Date King variant.

Here's a 1967 ad - pretty sure that says Date King PS

The only issue will be the jewel count - ad has 30, subject has 23

Saw a thread somewhere here where Stoddrob posted a dial and case identical to the subject.

I'm drawing a blank also, I would have called it a '23', but the calendar is the issue.

Found it in the 1969 Line Book BAWD0172 page 27 of 77.  Finally found the 23J version.
