You found it Plains! right down to the same band! to bad the name and discription are cut off... I can make out the 3 watches to the right of it though.

I see the one you are thinking of, but it looks like it starts out by describing it as 17Jewels, and it looks like they are #6 Bulova 23 #7 Royal Clipper #8 Senator.

I think mine is probably the discription on the far left that is cut off, I can make out 21 Jewels which this one is.

Wayne,

I am tending to think it may be a President model, they all seem to be 21 Jewels, and have the short "fins"

Different watch IMO to the above President.

The watch in question has very distinct straight side-bars. The Presidents look curved.

My shot in the dark is a Senator.

Wayne, are we talking about the same watch?

Apologies, but I see two totally different watches.

Agreed... those are two different watches... now if they switched in 1959 from that model to a new model President then maybe... but no... your righ Steph.. those are different.

Plains, are you able to check with the ad originator to see if they can advise what the missing text reads?
