Nice one. I tend to think it's later than 1973; How did you date it? Ad is dated 1975

I went through several 70s linebooks and could not find this particular model within the Dior sections. I would say it is a Christian Dior model with unknown variant or model number.

Cool design; what keeps the band in place so it does not slide out?

Ken, The band on my watch has a slot which the leather band slips through it, on the "D" side of the watch.

Interesting and stylish watch.  No mistake about it being a Dior... Variant unknown.

This from the Fall 1975 Linebook

Assuming the color is the 'brown' version.

Year to be determined from movement, The other two examples have N3 and N4 and whilst not necessary confirmation of the year, it is close. Although I too could not find any reference to this model pre 1975.
