The President has a very distinct case so it does indeed look like a President.  Not sure on the variant as the dial does not match.

Found one more ad to confirm the model.  Both ads are from 1958 so they fit.

Per the ads, I do not see the President models after 1956, though they continue to be listed in the pricelists. The Lexington shows up in ads strating in 1956, and is not in the 1955 pricelists.

The Lexington 'A' and Pres 'A' both use the same model number 31113 at $49.50.

I would say that 1956 looks to be the transition year from President model to Lexington. Slight difference in the expansion band style.

Here are some 1955 and 1956 ads.  What do you think panel President "A" or Lexington "A"?

Saw Ken's comment after posting these.  Looks like a transition in the name per his information with the model being Lexington in 1957.

In true Bulova fashion they like to keep us guessing 60 years later :-)

I agree with the notion that this watch was rebadged as the President sometime in 1957. Did anything note worthy happen that year that put the President of the United States ("Ike") in the bad books and out of public favour?
