Treasure vs Treasurer
Some of you will recall a long standing debate about whether there was a model called the "Treasure" or whether the "Treasure" listing in the crystal catalog was simply an error, and the only model that existed was the "Treasurer".
If you don't recall those discussions, then below is an example of one such exchange, which was originally posted here: http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1953-unknown-1326
You can also find assertions that there was no Treasure model here: http://www.mybulova.com/node/1348 and here: http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1951-treasurer-2932
I'm 99.99999% certain 'TREASURE' is a recurring typo or abbreviation for 'TREASURER' in the GS catalogues - unless We have something from Bulova confirming the name 'TREASURE'??
eg: a Bulova advertisement.
The Glass dimension listed by GS for the 'TREASURE' has been matched to Bulova ads showing the 'TREASURER' model on more than one occasion.
CMX345-2F 22.4 x 19.3 quadrant faceted labelled "Bulova Treasure" coming right from the crystal package.
Yep, We've seen this scenerio on a couple of 'TREASURER's in the database:
GS names a Watch 'TREASURE' and a Bulova ad names it 'TREASURER' - on 3 occasions now if My memory is correct.
No Mark, We simply haven't found an ad for the Treasure model. Crystal fits the Treasurer, Ardsley and the Academy Award P. No how do you figure it's a typo, crystal data in unreliable.
it's still a typo - 8 Months later.
Well, below is a 1949 Sears ad naming a watch the Treasure.
I'm sure that the immediate claim will be that a Sears ad isn't good enough, and the ad is wrong. I would point out in response to any such claim that Sears ads have been proved reliable. One memorable example of a similar issue is the early 1940s Lone Eagle A, which some--you can guess who--insisted could not be correct. The argument then was that the ad showed a mislabled Ambassador. After a crystal packet was found identifying a Lone Eagle of the appropriate size and shape, that argument fell apart. Since that time, we have also found an ad for a similarly styled Lone Eagle.
So, now we have an ad and crystal packet that name a watch the Treasure. Both are typos?
