And a Clipper case.  The Ben Hur does not come to quite such a point on the sides, rather it has a very smooth curve, like the Calhoun.  IMO.

The Ben Hur ad over exaggerates the true length and curve of the case, IMO.

The Ben Hur looks like this--a smooth, consistent curve of the bezel from top to bottom.

All your opinions are wrong.  I'm the only one that's right.  Fine.... fine... back to the clipper!
