Now we know this one is not the "Playboy", but it's actually the "Groom".

Yea check the shape of the numeral 2's and 4's btwen Groom and Playboy...among other things like hands and placement of sub-second dial.  Minor, subtle differences, but something has to distinguish these two models apart.
Changing my vote to one tick for subject watch as Playboy for now.

Do we have an ad to support the Groom ID. I see the font change on the 2 and 4 but I can't find an ad for the Groom ID. So far, I'm still on Playboy for the case and similar dial/hands.
