I believe this to be a 1948 His Excellency. Crystal has a nice size crack. 14K gold filled. Rose gold tone dial. What are the unique lugs called? Second hand sub-dial. Running strong 70+ year old watch.

I think this will be a 1949 based on the case serial number, and in that year this was the His Excellency.

Nice one DDeanC, I like them in rose gold. I've seen some nicknames for those lugs but never anything 'official'.

Would the purple hands be original?

I would say they are original. Normally they are heat treated to a more blu-ish colour, but there is a wide range of this sort of thing in horology, from straw yellow to red to purple to blue to grey. Cornflower Blue is the most traditional.

I'll hold off on the "NN" variant. Still looking for a rose/red/coral variant letter.

1949 His Excellency for now.
