Did this one ever make it into the DB?

Looks to be the first ever view of the "Sutton". Ads from 1953-54 in Partials.

Does this ad for the Everett dated 1952 not appear to be showing the same watch?

It Is indeed Nova, Had to be a Name change in 1953, ads in the database. Funny thing here is that mines a 1952, The Everett.

Subject is the EVERETT, as this new 1952 ad from the US backs up the one in the DB.

Also all Ambassadors from this time frame are 17 jewels, as opposed to subject's 21 jewels.

This one and others of the same design are still mis-named, if we take the two different ads for the Everett versus one for the Ambassador, and the jewel difference into account.

EDIT:- I have looked at all ads from the last genuine Ambassador ad with 21 jewels in 1946, right up to the 1970's, and not one, apart from the one I am questioning, show an Ambassador with more than 17 jewels.

So there's the 1952 Ambassador ad in root record, and then both a 1952 and '53 ad for Everett. Sounds like the Everett fits subject watch better.
