Additional Information

This is an interesting one.  It could be a variant of the Military Miss like we see with the American Nurse and Clara Barton having both types of dials.  Or it could be a Lido or another model altogether.  

It has a 10K rolled gold plate bezel with a stainless back.  The working movement is a 17 jewel 7AM and has a dual date stamp of 44/45 circle/triangle.  I went with 1944 because the case has a 44 serial #.  

Look forward to hearing your thoughts.  I couldn't find a date for the ad attached or any additional ads.  My thanks to Bob for transferring ownership of this beauty to me.  It is a nice addition to my little square watch collection from this time.

This is from a comment on an American Nurse thread saying this crystal was a Lido.

And the crystal on this looks to be the same.  I don't have the tool to measure it.

Hmmm, not knowing the date of the advert makes the ID a bit tenuous. I'm inclined to go with the Lido but would be tentative at best.

Ya I tried to find it but couldn’t.  Best guess is between 1944 and 1949 when that Martha Washington was advertised.  At least those are the years I found.

I continued to search this week and didn't come up with anything new.  I think that ad fits well with a yellow case and the same dial so I will go with Lido as well.
