Date King TT is listed as white. Subject watch looks to be yellow gold color. I agree with Date King however.

I found advert that better corresponds to the watch, the dial have also apparent vertical and horizontal lines, dial is also gold 
 
So my opinion is President "O"

Not sure if I'm switching. The Date King ad is 1966 the President ad is 1964. I'm really more inclined to go with the newer ad ( Date King) without a variant than the older President ad. If the watch was a 64 or 65 I'd say President.

So what gentlemen, no decision? Or got lost somewhere?

Hopefully more panel members will add their thoughts when they get the chance. I think Geoff hit the mail on the head with the date aspect. Looking through the adverts the Presidents with the date window are 1964, everything after that 65 onwards is listed as a Date King.

So I'm still in for Date King.
