Additional Information

I would appreciate some help here.  Not sure of year made and cannot find the "J" symbol that is on this watch anywhere in the ID guides on this site or via Google.  Wondering what year this was made, I think it's a men's watch.  Possibly origin?  It was my grandfather's, WWII era, could be from just about anywhere...he was on a US Navy destroyer and traveled all over.  Found a few similar-looking watches on Google searches, noted as 17JL for those.  I have pictures of the face of the watch, but doesn't seem that I can crop it down small enough to be below the 250kb size restrict on this site and still see the face in full.....suggestions there?  There are 2 jewels that I see on this watch at the 3 and 9, but there was no choice in the drop-down for 2 jewels.  Thank you.

1966 Diamond Excellency "J" on what might be the original JB Champion scissor center mesh band. It was on the watch when purchased years ago. Band has some weak scissor springs but oh well, it wears fine. M6 on both movement and case back. I have had this one apart in the past, but didn't have the ambition to remove the band to get to the case back. Manual wind 17J. Runs well, but displays some crystal crazing that I'll live with until I can locate and original crystal.  I also have the DE "J" in yellow gold plate.

Additional Information

My grandfather handed this down to me. My grandmother bought it for him. My dad remembers buing it in the store but he was young. Wanted verification on what it is, I'm suspecting 1967 Diamond Excellency "J." I took pictures of this strange white pastey substance on the band. Wanted to know if I should pay to have this professionally cleaned or if there is a way I can do it myself?
