HI Geoff, would you know if the case is signed with New York or American Standard?

Perfect!  Thanks for the New York part.  May make a difference in cross-checking date of case signautre.

The advert you reference is from 1924, the watch pictured is quite a bit different than the Franklin.

 Here's the full size version.
