Two new Baguettes: Marianne & Lydia
From Bobbee The Corsicana Sun, Texas. December 1936.
This VASSAR looks alot different than the enameled version of the late 1920's. It actaully looks like the white-dialed verison of the black dailed c1936 Virginia.
Also Phantom without the numbered dial.

Revere with some really nice detail on the bracelet.
To watch out for....There's a LORMA in this database ad in 1938, as well as a LORNA in the April 1937 ad below. They are different watches. LORNA below new model name.
April 1940 LORMA ad matching the ad 1938 LORMA Ad already in database ad in 1938 linked above. Confirms the LORMA. Still only one ad (above) for LORNA.
Dec. 1936. New shape 21 jewel CONRAD.
EDIT:- BIG blushes from me! not a new name, misprint Alden.
Bob, why do you believe the "Aldon" is a misprint?
Because it looks like the Alden, first ad page four of vintage ads.
"Alden" or "Aldon"???
December 1935 ad.
Rubbish res, but this 1935 ad has the engraved Commodore.
June 1937 ad.
New model KNICKERBOCKER.
Note the lack of a sub-seconds dial, common in several models at this time.
March 1930 ad.
I musta forgot to post this Watertite ad from the Ogdenberg Republic Jounrnal August 27, 1930.
December 1st, 1939 ad from page 4 of "The Casa Grande Dispatch" (Arizona) Newspaper.
"Doug Corrigan" looks like the model name.
Nice 1931 Sky King ad.
Shows the engraving well.
December 1938 ad.
New model for 1938, the "BRUNSWICK".
(I left other models and makes in for scale.)
Oh oh... that looks like the Knight doesn't it boys?
That was my first response. "That sure looks like the knight, now I need to look at the date code on my example...DARN!"
Dec. 1935 ad.
DICTATOR, earlier than the black dial BANKER in ads and watches.
Saw one on ebay not too long ago, wish I'd got it now.
December 1930 ad.
New model OAKLEY, Engraved and enamelled, sorry about the res, maybe the big Wahoo from Oahu can sort it!
Turned to greyscale, stretched just the right vertical bezel, then did a shadow highlight thingie. Any more and I'd be modeling the error in the original ad LOL
Two ads from the Syracuse NY Journal, the single watch one from March 1937, the other from May 1937.
Both portray the American Clipper available in White and Yellow gold.
October 1936 ad.
New name "Farragut".
Note the President, "white or natural gold"? I never noticed it before!
Farragut confirmed... 1937 New York Post ad... Looks to be the same one Bobbee....
Binghamton NY Press Grayscale 1935 -President
Ad for the wondering seconds...
Dec. 1934 ad.
Loads of ladies.
1933 ad. Better view of the two tone Prez.
Could someone please point out where the above ad states 'two-tone President'.
My apologies, I just thought that with the bezel uprights and horizontals looking darker they were yellow gold, and the lighter stepped sides were white gold. As this model came in a "two-tone" case, I assumed this was one.
With a matching band too, if you look closely it too has "light and dark" toning.
Proof it came in the "two-tone" case.
Dec. 1939 ad.
CONQUEROR. Can't find any watch like this in the DB, almost like a reverse American Eagle.
July 1932 ad.
ANDREW. new model.
May 1931 ad.
From the same May 1931 ad.
New names, Justine, Josephine and Nancy.
Miss Liberty from The Sycamore True Republican 1930
