I have been waiting for a pristine one of these to come up for sale but it hasn't come along yet so I picked this one up.  I just love these dials and wanted one in each of the colors they came in.  I believe this is the Her Excellency "M".  Thanks.

I'm 100% on this being Her Excellency although I'm not on it being "M". I understand the possibility of the variant shift as Kathy has proposed (M, N, O, being yellow, rose and white) but I'm not sure I see enough evidence to support it.  The dial is problematic as well but I think less so.

I think I 'm staying with Her Ex for now

I understand your reserve as it is a theory based on the F, G, H.  Did you see the ad I posted on the first page comments with this case dial combo?

Well the O is not this in white.  I found that a different Her Excellency with that variant.  Still thinking this is M based on the ad but there is also an X in the 50s so it becomes a bit muddy lol

With no documentation it is anything else, I vote HE "M" tentative for now.

All theories aside I would go with HE "M" based on the ad.  Hopefully a color ad or an ad clarifying the variants will come up sometime.

Picked up this dial that is in much nicer shape and runs well.
