Additional Information: 

This is a first time first see for me with this watch. I was totally thrown off by the non-etched bezel because it really looks like a President.  I'd not seen one like this before.

It's sporting a 7AP, 17 jewel movement. (17 Jewel??) The case and bracelet are in natural gold tone.

I had believe this to be a 1939 Bulova President.  The 17 jewel was throwing me off.  

So off a hunting I went into our ads... nada.  Until I looked through our models.. 1939.  We have an obscure ad in one of our models and low and behold.  There it IS... the the same original braclet, and it looks to be also showing this exact dial.

Boys I give you, the 1939 Standish.  Looks to be the first one we have in our database collection!

 

(PS Sorry my pics are usually in my light tent, but I was to lazy to drag it out tonight, so I took this with my computer lamp and my cell phone!  Wowww... my stupid cell phone took like 25 meg pics at really micro clarity!)
