That's what I was thinking, Mark, but I can find no matches. 

It is the direct descendant of the early 50's Duo-Wind.

ad is 1957 - I think We see Your Watch depicted as the "J" variant Reverend, although the White Dial version would not be the "J"

I agree it's a match for the Ambassador 'J' but with a white dial as detailed in the above advert.

Generic Ambassador for me at the moment. Will check the pricing guides tonight to see if there is any info to add.

Is this still to be added to the adverts? I don't see it anywhere.

Ok, got it. I'm going along with Ambassador. Not entirely convinced of the variant 'J'.  It's possible the dial colour makes it another variant.
