This ad is only 5 1/2" X 8 1/4" so if anyone wants a larger pic I can email in jpeg to you.

Looks like they had a 40% profit margin, not to bad in the early 50's, too bad that isn't the case now...

Bob, any idea what year the ad is from?

It's from 1951 according to the seller, and the only date I could find was in the bulova page showing they won the "!951 Design Award". Apparently Matthews didn't like to date their catalogs, I'm still going through it trying to get more specific.
