Unknown... we have no ad for this.  Pretty rare movement though.

If Rev Rob's watch is an Ambassador I think we need to tag this as an Ambassador as well.

The lugs on mine are different, from the back they can be clearly seen to be set inwards, without any smoothing with the case side, if that makes any sense. Also , the case looks different from the side, and my crystal appears a lot more curved. I'll try and get some additional pics up later today.
