I believe the case shape is rectangular. Do you have a pic of the back? Is there an ad?

Hate this band. Just put a NOS Band on looks 100% better. Will post a pic.

 Page 8, ad 35 is so similar I'd bet Ambassador. Only difference is a slight flare in the lugs .

The ad shows a slightly different watch.  Look at where the lugs meet the case. 

This watch actually matches the ad, in my view, so the difference is real, not just a matter of the artist's interpretation:  http://www.watchophilia.com/photogallery/bulovas-1950-1959/a1953-ambassador/

I also have the same model as the subject watch and speculate that it is an Ambassador based only on crystal specs.  I have not yet found a matching advert.

Yep, Your right Lisa. I have the same watch as the ad, my bad, so much for that lame idea. I've edited my last comment removing the idea of an artsts error.

Ambassador  "A". Look at the curve at the base of the lugs, and disregard the band, as it has no significance.
