OK Bob, I it was all about determining the year of manufacture and model ID, I believe that the material of case is not so much significant and determining the price

Kens first ad above (G) does not state or picture luminous dots, does say gilt dial.
Second ad (F) states and shows luminous dots, silver dial.
The tuning fork in subject watch is not shown in either of those two ads.
Subject watch has luminous dots.
So can we "guess" based on silver dial vs gilt dial?  ...or do we use the presence/absence of luminous dots?

Yes that Full advert does match the watch, right down to luminous dots and champagne dial. 
I made a mistake stating there was a tuning fork on subject watch dial.  I was looking at another example, so disregard "no tuning fork on dial" comments.

The only difference I see between that ad and subject watch is 7 days and a couple hours   :)
I'm good with "G" variant.
