1958 Unknown

The watch is dated 1958 with a 17 jewel movement number 11AC.  The case number is D202415 and is 10k RGP. The nearest matching case to this is a 1957  Ambassador F which is a white RGP bezel and the same movement .  There are a number of Ambassador watches listed in the index without an actual watch . I am wondering whether this is an unknown Ambassador model . Have done the usual searches and come up with nothing.

Can you toss out some crystal specs?  There were quite a few, very similarly styled Ambassadors around that time.  The crystal specs may help provide a tentative confirmation.

Bobbee  Do a global keyword site search for "Batman" under the main search page....you'll find links to posts where others have discussed Bulvoa and Batman too.

Wow, I see what you mean William. I really like the 1954 "batmask" model.

Anyone spotted this? Swap dials in the 2 watches flanking the (gulp) "Jordan", image 32, page 8.
