Unknown for now, but no doubt a nurse/doctors watch. The Nightingale model was used over a number of decade. Might eventually fall into this category.

At the moment we have a generic model category for "Nurses watch". Any objections to ID as this for now?

Sweet little girl plains.

I'm OK with the "Nurse" tag.

I think that is Clara Barton, similar as Fifth´s watch

It is the same, nice pickup Jabs. At least it gives us a name to search for now.

Lots of Lady Bulova models had "normal" lugs at this time, but all autos that I see. Nightingales all had single lugs at each end.

Yes, see it now. CB.

That bottom row second from right looks like the watch JP gave me a few years ago, still no name...

...where is the original for this ad? Another "hideaway" one?

Hmmm, a stretch, to make out Clara Barton in that advert but I'll go along with it
