Scott,

If You are thinking the Watches shown above are the same they're not.

The Case design is different.

AMBASSADOR "A"   vs.  OXFORD,  Circa 1939/40?  (Or a lame redial, on the Ambie<or> OX?!)

OR PERHAPS NEITHER, SINCE THE SAME EXACT CASE IS SPORTING A '21J" 10AE!)

FRANKEN BULL? OR perhaps an UPSCALED "Lincoln,"  or "Montgomery" ???

 

I POSTED THIS AD SNIPPET/= BEFORE HERE, IN SEVERAL PLACES... (1939, SAT. EV. POST...)

Ambassador "C" is my call too. Why was this one ID's as an Oxford?

OR...

WHY is an "Ambassador C" DIAL variant (and perhaps, movement?) housed in an Oxford, Lincoln and/or Montgomery, CASE?!

Do you guys not see the Crown knotched out of the case and into the bezel on the Oxford?

and on the outside of a smooth case side in the Ambassador?

I can see a few details that are different between the watch we're discussing and the Ambassadors pictured.  As a Bulova Noob, I don't know if they are important, but...

Compare the bottom picture from Scott's first post with the top picture in his second post.

1.  The lugs of the Ambassadors pictured extend farther in, and are more curved than the subject watch.

2.  The crown of the subject watch is recessed, whereas it is not on the Ambassadors.
