Additional Information

1966 Diamond Excellency "J" on what might be the original JB Champion scissor center mesh band. It was on the watch when purchased years ago. Band has some weak scissor springs but oh well, it wears fine. M6 on both movement and case back. I have had this one apart in the past, but didn't have the ambition to remove the band to get to the case back. Manual wind 17J. Runs well, but displays some crystal crazing that I'll live with until I can locate and original crystal.  I also have the DE "J" in yellow gold plate.

Thanks, Kathy. I actually posted these over a year ago. When going through my watches trying to figure out something else, I realized that I had initially posted the wrong case shape and edited it. That kicked the posting back to the top of the comments list. :o)

I was wondering why it came back up.  Great looking watches!

Sorry my comment posted twice.  That has happened a couple of times.  Not sure what I am doing to cause that.
