I have looked through the ad database and not really found anything that matches besides the Senator. Any ideas??

I changed this from an unknown to a Senator because the case, crystal and dial specs are identical to my 1935 Senator. http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1935-senator-2255

Movements are interchangable, not only was it offered with case options but also with some dial variant options. See last 3 pictures
