In yellow it's the Stamford but I do recall Lisa doing some research showing the pink/rose to be named otherwise. I just can't remember the model now.

Leuitenant maybe?

 The case is Red Gold so according to the 1942 add it is a Alderman.

15 jewel mvnt vs 17 in both 1942 ads.  I see alderman watch records w/ 15j, 17j, and 21j.  ?

War year watch if USA made.  Swiss (BXW) on 15 jewel mvnt.  Curious about "sterling base" if USA case.  Maybe the 15 jewel "Alderman" w/ Swiss mvnts don't have war year "sterling base" and could have been something other than Alderman. The 17 jewel Alderman that match the two ads are USA made "Sterling base" cases and house USA mvnt.

Spiro-Any chance for a pic of the inside case back?

One tick unconfirmed from me.  Jewel count doesn't match the two ads on site.

Great summary!

I'm in for Avaitor with the corresponding 15J movement.
