I disagree. The Senator had wider rows of engraving top and bottom and sides, extending to the case edges. The Executive has a single row horizontally and vertically, with a bare space all the way round.

Also the sub-dial is too large and too high on the Senator. 1926 ad below. Executive.

Database ad Dated May 1926 appears to show the 'EXECUTIVE' with a Dial (w/sub dial) matching the subject.  http://www.mybulova.com/sites/default/files/vintage_ads/1926-AD5-%28May-...

It appears to show a sub dial because it does have a sub dial in the ad, Mark.
Why upload that cruddy fuzzy pic, when the dial can be seen easily in the ad?
Just confusing, and if you use your mouse, you can expand the ad I posted to see the sub dial quite easily.
