I'm leaning towrds tentative President. The nearest President ad that shows this style is 1956 and the next President ad is 1960 which is a totally different case. Does anybody know if this case was renamed after '56?

Don't know DarHin.  Here's a 1956 ad.  Click on ad for full version.

Yes, that is the ad that I was referring to. It's 2 years before the subject watch. If we had an ad after '58 that was the same I would say confirmed but since the next ad we have for the President is '60 and a totally different case I am tentative. That's why I asked if anyone knew if this case was renamed at some point after '56 which is the last ad for that particular President.

DarHin  I think one of those 1960 ads also says "four years in the making" and some folks "theorized" that's why we don't see similar president ads btwn 1956 and 60.  I'm guessing we just don't have the ads for those interum years yet.

President due to gap in ads for that watch. Makes sense due to 4 years in the making. We don't need the warranty implications though.
