I'm thinking Senator- vairant unknown.  While the case design is that of the Senator "A", the ads and price lists from this time period strongly suggest the "Senator" series, along with other "model series" from this time period, have a different letter variant based on Charcoal dial color. 
Below are two 1955 ad snippets showing this strong possibility.  Click for full ads.

While the Senator "A" ad may be the "closest ad which includes teh unique case design of subject watch", it is highly likely that the Charcoal dial variant will NOT be the "A".
