I have seen this model on eBay auction called the over & under (referring to the over day & under date dial). I doubt that is the official model name though. They are scarce & very collectable. You should be able to read the 14K mark from the caseback & band, if they are solid gold. Nice watch.

Yes, "Top/Bottom", "Side/Side" "Day/Date" 218 versions plus versions with just the Date in any other position but the 4 o'clock position are more desirable.

Missed out on one like this, but without day/date. I bid $90 for a joke, it went for $91!
