The package might be glowing when it arrives...

'AMBASSADOR' is advertised as 15 Jewels.

This Watch has a 17 Jewel 9 A which according to the database was only produced in 1925 and '26.

Oh Boy Howdy! Finally a 17 jewel 9A. They do exist. Does it have a date symbol?

Looks good for an Ambassador from here. Is the 9 open or fubar? Geiger counter special.

Ambassadors of this era all tend to be square. This looks rectangle to me.

Possibly an early President of sorts.

Cheaper version of this?

Yup, in 1924 the Sterling Silver or Green Gold filled Case was only $27.50!

Wayne,

No Date code that I can see and I can't see the 9 either, yet.

admin,

Good point, looking at the Minutes track this Case may be more Rectangle than Square.
