Additional Information: 

This one appears to be a first for the database: 1966 Banker "K". Light corner wear with a little more on the case back and some speckles on face. Case and movement both marked M6. Replacement band was on it when I got it; a pretty good match to case engraving.

Listed in 1967 ad as available with silver or gilt dial. Dial on subject watch is  what I would call champagne, so I am assuming it's the "gilt" version.

Found this accurate runner online listed for sale as a "ladies watch" .

 After re-evaluating face color in various lighting, I believe this is the silver variant dial with even overall age toning that makes it appear champagne.
