Nice watch Jim. My only nit to pick is that I think the case shape should be Rectangular.

Or the EVERETT. 1952 ad.

Most likely to be the EVERETT, as the AMBASSADORS in this time frame all had 17 jewel movements, except for the one ad in DB depicting this case shape with 21 jewels.

EDIT:- There is another ad in the DB naming this model as the EVERETT, from 1952.

This record, along with two others - another currntly ID'ed 1952 Ambassador, and a 1953 Ambassador- have been resubmited to the panel for ID review based on new ads.

Everette from me. 
Bourg01 has the hard copy of the catalog showing the 1952 ad as 21 jewel Ambassador, so either that ad is incorrect or it's two 1952 Everette ads against one 1952 Ambassador ad.
