This watch has characteristics similar to those found in the Ambassador line, but I cannot find an ad showing this style among that model line, or in any other. Unknown for now; see if anyone else finds a match.

Similar to this Unknown Model

This watch does look like the Unknown Ken links above.  I remember the lug angle discussion now.  

I'm at unknown, but as stated in the linked unknown thread, it does have charactoristics of an unknown (and unsupported by ad) Ambassador.

Nice looking watch Patrick. Not sure I see anything that matches either.

It does look like a Senator Deluxe to me.

Yeah, I looked at that advert, in fact I've been back two or three times. Jaroslav is right, the side does not look the same to me. I note that the advert is a drawing and that could account for the difference. The rest of the case and dial seem spot on.

I would give this one two ticks as a Senator Deluxe.
