Nice Tonnau L3 with 17Jewel BT10.

I've searched database and looked through ads, but haven't found an exact match yet.

Dial's a bit rough, but an overall nice watch.

Most similar to "Cadet" as far as shape and lugs.

Thanks!

Thanks!  That was fast.  I think you found the only pic in ALL the ads.

The advertisement rendition shows wider bezel outline and the bottom lug reflection through me off.  Also looks shorter vertically than actual.

Seems like they call just about anything a Senator, as I don't see this model as being close to any of the other "Senators".

Good spot!
