Plains, I'm curious what differentiates this Oxford from the Montgomery of the same year?...I'm not talking about dials (as there's no Oxford ad for this dial variant that I know of), but case shape/dimensions and jewel count. 
Could you ad case measurements and any crystal specs/dimensions for this beauty?

This is not the Oxford, or the Montgomery.

1938 ad, the WEBSTER.

Another "swing and a miss" on the original ID, but thanks to bobee it's a "swing and that babys over the left field fence".  Nice find on the ad bobee!!!!

New ad does match dial!  Cool.  The similar 1939 Ambassador here has 21 jewles.  Oxford ad in root record is from 1948 too.
I'm good for Webster.
