Bracelet looks like a match with the ad too.

Case looks like a AA case, too!

Geoff, if you still have it, does this watch have the faceted crystal as per the ad above?

Silly question. I can see now in the next to last photo that it IS faceted, and that means it is a match with the "blue" ad above.
