Additional Information: 

This watch takes a crystal thatb was made for the 1950 Academy award 'QQ' watch.  I am presuming this is not an academy watch as it is an 'Excellency', one other I have seen before confirms this.  So general concensus is that this is the His Excellency 'QQ' model, that is what it shall be known as until proof comes to light of a different name.

Perhaps with a lull in "civilian production," as did Hamilton Watch Company, etc.?? (The "President," plus the following other Presidential models: B, C, D & E.)
