I'm not finding the His & Her Honor model names in any pricelists, though we do not have any pre-1954 lists. These models are also the highly advertised Maxim and Starlet, also seen together in this 1953 N. Carolina ad:

Are His & Her Honor Bulova authorized model names or perhaps promotional names?

Yeah I agree.. only one I've seen. I'm betting a local promotion.

I've seen so many ads with the names wrong, I don't trust much in those ones.

Cool, Bulova American Goom is a new model we haven't seen before and a perfect partner for the 'American Bride' model.

I'd love to see these watches side by side as a set.

Placing this 1960 ad in the 50s just in case another 1950s model shows up.  I am also including a picture of a dial and movement from the 1959 version I have.

Note: there is no Wilkshire name in the pricelists; there is however a Wilshire at $67.50. Not sure if this ad has a typo or that there existed two similar names with the same price, but where two separate models.
