From what i have been able to find i think maybe this is a 1951 Squadron ?

I just saw this advert within the last few days. Check the latest ads and I think you will find it.

Very nice and super interesting watch Jim.

Unk... I've seen a magnant that is a faux watch just like this.  I'm sure it's an advertisment, but it didn't have a name on it if I recall.

Good find, very unusual but neat watch. Like others, I've seen it before, but cannot identify the model...Unknown for now
