My Gut says president, but that ad is pretty grainy.

Jabs is thinking HE too, based on Plains example linked earlier in this thread.

Structure figures used on dial and shape hands are completely different than shown in the ad with HE "EE"

HE 'EE' for me based on the ad match and the fact that all the President Advert's I have predate 1947. The hands and dials on the President midels also differ from the subject watch, whilst the advert above is a match.

HE "EE" upon reflection, and in light of further evidence from jabs and admin.

HE "EE" works for me. Discussion changed me from "sort of anyway" to at least two ticks.
