Additional Information: 

Received this one yesterday. I can't ID it. Lisa has one just like it and it is listed as an unknown model. This one is super nice for the age. I think the band may be the original. It has a broken main spring currently and I'm suspecting that when it broke it was put in a drawer somewhere until it was found and sold to me.

 

It has a dust cover for the movement but I removed it for the photo.

Neither Bernice has enamelling. The 1930 ad has shadowing, look at the bottom left corner.

No enamel.

Unk.

I agree with you Bobbee, it's just shawdowing to show the case shape. I'm at unknown also. There's just too many differences between this watch and the ads.
