'EXCELLENCY' - although I dont see the familiar Bulova '23 Jewel' script on the Dial? 'PRESIDENT' maybe, the Jewel count would help.

                                                           Not the President.

                                    LENOX, lots of ads for this one in the 1950's ads.

Yep Lenox works for me.  Good one Bobee. Minute track on watch is just faded a bit. It's there though.
