Additional Information

This is what appears to be a 1936 Phantom.  It has a 6AF movement with dual Square & Triangle date codes.   It has a 10kt white gold filled case with engraving.  It also has the exploding stick hour marker dial without seconds.  I found the following ad that shows the Phantom comes in engraved and plain cases and shows both dial configurations.  I believe this to be a factory configuration.

Another advert example which indicates both white and yellow gold versions. Variant dial, but from above we can see that was normal.
