Well, so much for that thought. If we do go with Siglo 21, we should ad a disclaimer that the ad is Spanish.

This is getting to be a bit "Pythonesque"....

Yea it is.
 I'm gonna go with what ever Geoff said earlier (my rubber stamp vote).  We are splitting hairs now, and either name will put this one to rest till more is revealed.

My thoughts are that we go with the official Bulova model name and not a translation.

I have the crystal + packet for the ' 21st Century' model back Australia which would confirm a fit/match. My preference would be the English version, otherwise the model list will start expanding to include translated names, and that will start to make things messy.

I guess it will be the most reasonable solution. But it would be good to unify the ID, in the database we have 4 watches with ID Ivanhoe.

I agree with ID "21st Century"

So we have some of these watches ID'ed as 21st Century, and some as Ivanhoe.  Admin, did you ever get the 21st century crystal package?  If so, do the dimensions jive with the bezel opening for these watches?  
Bobbee reposted the 1954 Nov price list supplement showing "21st Century".  I'm thinking this model came out in/about Nov 1954- at least advertised as 21st Century.  I'm gonna check if we have any watches currently ID'ed as Ivanhoe pre-1954.  All the watches currently ID'ed as 21st Century are 1954 or newer.
