Additional Information

1957 Banker - white gold plate with case and movement both marked "L7". Crystal appears original and is  thick and domed in the center end to end. Case, crystal, face and hands literally spotless. Mounted on a nice ostrich leather band. Accurate runner. Style-wise this is one of the favorites in my collection. I am guessing this is either a Banker "A" or "B". Referenced ad is dated 1959.

There are two variants, A and B, in the pricelists and an ad showing A as the yellow gold. I am tentative with B as the white gold version.

Great ad, I missed that one. If the "A" variant is confirmed as yellow, then by process of elimination; Banker "B" it is.
