Additional Information: 

I am quite sure this watch is a Banker with a dial variant from the ad, its a 17J 6CL movement that seems to be common to the two Bankers that Janet has in the database. The RGP case and back is stamped M7 and the Gold plated Movement is stamped N0 which I thought was weird until I looked at a 67 Diamond Excellency that will follow this one. Case measures 21.1 mm wide, 37mm lug to lug and 17.5 mm between lugs, Black leather strap with White stitching is a Kreisler Calfskin.

I'm thinking at leat a Banker w/ unkonwn variant, but it's darned similar to that AA variant ad.  Still researching... Nice watch OT!

I'm not on board with the Banker as this appears to be a  ladies watch. I don't think I've ever seen a man's watch with a 6CL movement. That doesn't make it a ladies but I'm skepticle. It's pretty hard to argue the ad posted though.

Again, another nice find OT.

OT does the over all size look to be a ladies watch or men's? Still banks employ females too, right.

Generic 'Banker' for me. This dial variant may make it an 'AB' or something like that as the variant is a double letter.

Based on the ads and marketing of this period (mid-late '60) I think the Banker line is a Men's line...and didn't think about the relative size....

Here it is next to the 54' Park Lane with the funky dial I was about to pull...

It has a 11/16" band, so I would say its a mans watch, but for a man with a feminine side to him :^D
