Definitely a Goddess of Time. Matches the adver  with the watch just below the one in the case, You are correct in the notice of the embelished lugs. Another very nice find Jabs.

Looks like characteristics of "Goddess of Time".  Plain case style, similar to ad used in root record.  JP the one right below the box in root ad is an "engraved case" model, which has fancy lugs and engraving around bezel.  

Round plain case with those XX pattern lugs.....we may have an ad which matches.....I'm checking.

10K RGC similar to bottom right of the second 1940 ad.  Also check third ad, which has Medallion model.  I don't remember or know the differences between "Goddess of Time", Medallion, and Beatrice....  I can't get the links to work to a particular ad today :(

I'm torn on this one, I just don't see the X's in that advert. Still on the fence here.....

Unknown from me.  

Still thinking it may turn out to be a "Goddess of Time" w/ in time, but check out the Bernice and Barbara in this 1939 ad.  ...and in 1940 ad here, there's Beatrice, Miss America and Goddess of Time....all similar except for case shape of subject watch being round.
