Matches the Senator to a T except for the odd hours markers.

Tentative Senator for me, even has the brushed finished dial.

Case reference # 2057

M6 on the Caseback would indicate a producton Date of 1966.

It's unclear from the images what is stamped on the Movement, possibly M7.

 I too thought it was a Senator. The face on the movement kept me from making a positive ID on that.  The 11AL movement date ranges mid to late 1960's

M6 is stamped on both the case and movement I have updated the photos to include close-ups that are readable. 

 

The Patriot is the only other style that came close it has the face / manufacture time that is close, though the jewel count is not correct.
