Hello i figure i add some of my watches even though they are already known models...after looking at the exact year for this watch i notice there isn't any lone eagles of this kind with a 21 10ae is this the wrong movement in this watch??...or do i have the model wrong? when i got this watch it wasn't running after and good clean and oil it keeps time up to a minute plus or minus a day after regulation...i was going to sell it but i don't know if some want to make a decent offer i will consider it...but i really like it even though its on  a womens band i have a wire lug band coming for something else but that project when south when the yoke flew somewhere in the room... here are the pics..Corrected Ambassador, i now remember that...thanks for the correction..

So this is a 21 jewel 1940 Lone Eagle.  After reading all this (again) I'm going with one tick for now.

Yea I saw the possible difference in lugs...Subject watch case SN suggests 1939.  Looks like a shield on the movement- so 1939 based on mvnt too. Below is subject watch next to ad.
