This could be a Her Excellency "U" although the dial looks a bit different.

And on a close up the case seems to match but the dial is different.  Maybe someone will know if there was a different varient on this one.  I will be posting a Her Excellency and it has two different dials on it.  Lovely watch.  I hope to get one of the solid gold Her Excellencys one of these days.

I think you're spot on Kathy. The case looks exact. I can't help but wonder if the dial isn't original, it doesn't seem to fit quite right. The numbers seem too far out to the edge. Either way it's a really nice example. I think the Her Excellency name fits.

I think it's a Her Excellency, the dial almost looks re-done, or possibly a replacement.

I'm leaning towards Her Excellency "U" - noting possible refinished dial.

I agree with Her Excellency "U" with a note about the dial
