Treasure vs Treasurer

I think we have some watches that are ID'd incorrectly. Plese tell me if I'm wrong but isn't the Treasure a square shaped case and the Treasurer round? If you do a search on both names  both watches come up.

Bob,

IMO both models are one and the same, a "Treasurer" and the case will have a Coin edge finish around the perimeter.

ML, If both models are the same, then why the two names? Check the search watch function on this site. One ends with e and one ends with er. I'm confused.

 The round bottle top style is the Treasurer, as found in adverts, no doubt about that. The long 1930s model is the Treasure, this is found through crystal catalog, and probably an advert somewhere on here. Someone has just put the round one in the wrong name, it should be under treasureR.

I have been looking for one of these rare beauties for years.  First one I have seen in pictures other than the ad.  Photo courtesy of dan035red ebay item number 300511590337. It's on auction as Treasure, but as per this informative thread, let's call it Treasurer.

I saw that listing Wayne. I have bought four watches from this seller and have never been disapointed.

'Treasure' is a GS typo or acronym.
