Randall.

Will, I think you'd be safe adding the jewel count to the root record, 17. And this record shows up in the Recent Comments list as "Bulova Watch Details". I think you addressed another record listed the same way a few weeks ago.

Yep this is one of those older records and I don't know where the "bulova watch details" comes from.

Wish I could read the black area in the Randall ad Bobbee posted above.  Anybody have better eyes then me?
Looks like Plains found a 1951 newspaper ad for an Ultimatic Randall .  Click for full ad from the 1950 decade thread.

Saw another with the "Ultimatic" first part, we could go with that.

Bobbee, it looks like there's another word above Randall in the black area of the first ad you posted.  Can't make it out, and I've tried every image stretch I can come up with to read that black area.  Could that word also be Ultimatic?  That would make three ads for Ultimatic Randall.

It is possible. There is no other reason really for anything written before Randall.

I agree w/ that. There's not "extra" words above the names of other models in that ad...and there's "something in larger letters" above the Randall name....
