There's several round Commander variants in the watch and ad database from this time period.  There is no other ad from this period showing this shaped case being anything but a "commander"- and it isn't round like the others commanders. 
While this may very well turn out not to be the Commander AQ, I think it is best described as the Commander AQ because this name distinguishing it from the other "round" Commanders.

Is subject watch what you'de call a "silvertone dial"?  It's sure not green or copper.

New ad confirms Commander "AQ".

I think both advert "Q" descriptions pretty much describe this watch exactly.

Gary, is the Movement Model correct? With the D in the model it would seem to indicate that this should be a "date" watch.
