Me too!  The January 1955 price lists show 6 slightly different Commodore model variants availbale, however by August 1955 there are only 4 different variants shown.  
Aug 1955 price list snippet from the cumulative models section.

I agree with Commodore also. The hands look to be a touch shorter than they should be, the minute hand should extend to the seconds track.
