Additional Information: 

Love the butler silver type dial.  Double hinged case and what appears to be original ochre colored radium numbers and hands unless they were done more recently.

Now the name is a toss-up it seems between two names for what appears to be the same model during the same year. 

After a bit of chat with the gents I'll agree it does look abit more like the Senator... but really.. could be the other as well.
