Additional Information: 

Got it a few years ago with a complete package - inner plastic box, outer cardboard box, instruction manual, all that jazz. I always wanted a 1969-made watch (same as my age) and this was the closest I've been able to come to. It's perfectly wearable even today and even on my thick wrist :-)

I don't know the name of this model, time-span of manufacturing and I've never seen a watch like this anywhere, eBay including.

It looks like the Accutron Day Date AW, your dial is slightly different than the ad but the case is a match.

Is your case Gold tone or Stainless?

It's stainless, OldTicker.

If it is Stainless then its not the AW, here is a Swiss ad showing it in Stainless with both a band & strap but no model designation for either. The one with the band has a Blue dial and it looks like the one with the strap might be yours.

Accutron Day Date with the variant unknown for now...and welcome aboard!

Yes, this would be the watch - it has exactly the same blue details on a dial. I even have the stainless steel band - it's too short for my wrist so I wear an aftermarket flexi instead...

Thank you very much :-)

Cool, I must say. 

Accutron DD AW works for me too.

This is more detailed shot to capture the colours and the "linen" dial.
