I've found one advertisement from 1973 that I believe shows this same watch, based on the clusters of diamonds above and below the bezel, and that it is 14k gold with 23 jewels. Unfortunately, it does not provide a model name, only a number 55728. A rather expensive watch, and very similar with other Diadem models:

Either Unknown model or if we have a match we use the model number (which we have in the past).

I added the two photos you sent me. I'd say the bracelet on your watch is original to the piece, it's very nice.

ABC catalog shows the case model K16 with a 5AT movement, showing its correct.

Found the model name on this one.   It is a Diadem "DM" based on this 1972 ad.

Confirming model and variant based on the 1971 Line Book BAWD0178.  Also the date needs to be updated to 1971 due to the N1 date code on the case.
