This watch was previously ID'd as a Ambassador "A", but after acquiring a 1939 Ambassador and compairing the two, it belongs in the unknown catagory for now until another  Lone Eagle "A" ad shows up. ;-)

Wonder why this is still unknown when we have ads for LE "A", which means there are more variants, just like the American Clipper and Minuteman had.
There have been IDs given on other watches with less info.
LE, variant unknown.

I'm good with 1941 Lone Eagle.   How did we get the A variant for this model?   Bobbee does the ad you mention- the A ad- match the subject watch?  I'm assuming your referring to an "A" variant and this does point to other variants probably out there.  I just see it's currently listed as an "A".

you beat me to the punch on that point...I had to go look.  It would be better listed as 1941 Lone Eagle unknown variant IMO :)
